    Post too short

    I tried a post today with just 'Try this' and an attachment. It was rejected, too short. Can the minimum be reduced, this seems perfectly logical words for me.

    It'd also be nice if I could post a hyperlink without having a post-count greater than 5 btw,

    I understand why such precautions would be added, but it's a pain because I joined this forum to ask a question that requires a link that people can refer to.

    Why does it require a link for people to refer to? Can't you attach the file in question directly here? Also, you should make every effort to explain the issue you are looking to resolve within the post itself so that people can decide whether or not they might be able to help without having to follow a link or open a file.

    In this case it's because he's trying to use Power Query to pull from an external webpage.

    Btw... this issue of not posting links has also been addressed. New posters can now post links in order to comply with forum cross posting policies.
