Leave as is

Eusprig season is upon us, its time to get on our high horses and poke fun at other peoples blunders. (2 things instantly spring to mind from that sentence:

  1. its always time to poke fun at other peoples blunders
  2. Out of my office window I see someone has put a horse in our nextdoor neighbours garden)

Anyway back on topic, I was sent this screenshot from a City financial institution:

    A friend of mine once described the commentary in VBA code on an Access database he was doing maintenance work on.

    The screen in question accepted various user inputs to build a SQL statement. Near the bottom of the routine where the SQL statement was ready to be executed was a comment that said (something along the lines of):
    ‘ If you got this far, everything worked.

    Unfortunately VBA modules don’t have a means of embedding in them, a lucky rabbit’s foot.

    I always worry if I see
    ‘it worked!!!’
    Exclamation marks in comments are a concern
