Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Just want to wind Charlie up: (apologises Charlie)

Some English peers have now invented more terms ,(well a while ago actually):-

First there was

Free and Total float

Then came

End or Terminal flaot

And now

External and Internal float

What next???????????????????????

Hi Vikas,

Since Charlie raised it, you can find out all you ever wanted to know about Terminal Float by clicking on the link. Don’t worry about Charlie’s crack about the English, he finds them a convenient scapegoat for anything he doesn’t like.

Hi Vikas,

If you use the Wideman Glossary, you should find all the information you need.
