    Quick question... I did a search for all threads with at most 0 replies and that was fine. I did the same search a little while later after responding to some of the threads but the results still included the original threads in the results even though they had more than 0 replies.
    Thoughts?

    VB reads that 0 as a null value and ignores that part of the search.

    Thanks for the reply, Mike.
    So what is it searching/sorting on in my example? That was my only criteria.

    I think your bottom screenshot must not have come from your top one... If you don't enter any keywords, it'll tell you "Please specify some words or valid user names to search on. There were no matches for those that you specified." ... At least it does for me.

    Nope, no keywords. I just did it again. The only thing I'm changing on the serach criteria page is Find threads with at most 0 replies. So if it's not using that as criteria (which it's obviously not!), then I wonder what it's doing... Hmmmmm....

    Ah, at most... didn't notice that. Dunno.

    Another mystery...
    That's ok though! With all the great new things around here I'll let it slide!
    :D
