When I select "M" column to set parameters I get the following message:

Run Time Error 383
Text Property is Read Only

Any suggestions?

What version are you running?

Do you have any file "open" when you click on Options > M Column CSV fields?

Have a look at this thread

Using 5.3.2

Tried the reset but either doesn't work or I'm doing it wrong

bad install

Something is wrong with your files. The easiest fix is to use the control panel to uninstall then clean out the directory where EPE resides in Program Files and do a complete reinstall.

Reload doesn't work either.

Solved my problem. Went to "registry editor" and deleted TurboCCC.

Thanks for all the suggestions.

If this happens again, Turbo's -reset option also does this without manually editing the registry.

How did you determine the "#comment-269900"

That technique would be really helpful because sometimes the best FAQs are not in the FAQ section.

If you reply to or quote a post, two sets of numbers show up in the address line ( I use Chrome). The second set of numbers is the post.

I did not know about this either. Just found it myself.

AHA

I see how that work (thanks David)

When you scan a thread and find a specific post that you want to be able to direct others too, if you choose the "Quote" option for that post, then a dialog will open for you to begin typing in.

In the address line of the browser will be - in this case
http://www.poi-factory.com/comment/reply/35233/269900?quote=...

(which really ends in "quote=1#comment-form" but has been "1#comment-form" has been replaced by "..."

This is what you need to create a link to the post for which you have just clicked on "Quote".

Highlight the address bar and put the highlighted character string on the clipboard by CNTL-C or [right-click]-Copy.

You can then back out of that quote dialog box leaving a character string on your clipboard.

In a post where you want to be able to direct others to that specific post in the thread you just backed out of, you can turn that character-string-address you saved on the clipboard into

http://www.poi-factory.com/node/35233/#comment-269900

by changing "comment/reply" to "node"
and -
knowing that the second number in the character string is the comment number for the thread represented by the first number,
then
end the new character string by putting
"#comment-269900" (in this specific case) in place of the characters which follow the "slash" which follows the thread number

Check me, @WAASup, since you just did it. Did I say that correctly? Is there an easier way?

Each post in a forum topic has an HTML anchor generated by the Drupal software. Your post's is <a id="comment-295108"></a>

Add the anchor to the end of the topic's URL (http://www.poi-factory.com/node/37009) to get a direct link to the post/comment: http://www.poi-factory.com/node/37009#comment-295108

I used Chrome's Inspect element to view the HTML source.

I would have thought that the slash was required.

In Firefox, right click on a page and when the menu appears, choose "View Page Source" in order to view the HTML source for that page.

Click on View > Source.

The HTML is shown left pane top to bottom; then right pane top to bottom for whatever is on the portion of the thread you see on the screen.

I also had to do this

Standard HTML. The pound represents an anchor point within a document defined by 'ID="anchor"' or 'name="anchor"'.
