This Month's Tip: Accepting Solutions

Accepted solutions indicate that a reply has helped solve a community member's question. Accepting a solution adds indicators to the question and answer to assist others to quickly find possible resolutions when they face a similar issue. Accepting a solution also adds to the reputation of the solution author on the community.
