Hi :)
It is the design of the mailing list.  It's designed so that people can't
just "reply to" in order to reply to the whole mailing list.  Clicking on
"reply to" makes the reply private so that it can't be seen by the mailing
list as a whole.

The only option offered by most email clients is the "Reply to all".  Some
specialist and rarely used email clients do offer a "Reply to group" but
that is rarely needed for any other mailing list or anywhere so people are
not used to using it, even if they are lucky enough to have the option

This problem is compounded by the "Reply to all" putting the mailing list's
address in the "CC" field instead of the "To".  This means that almost
everyone is supposed to perform some dexterous cut&pasting for every single
reply which is a real pita on a hand-held device and is not entirely easy
on the most commonly used email clients.

I think a lot of us have complained to the people who carefully set-up the
mailing list to misbehave in this awkward and clumsy fashion but they claim
that the majority of people prefer it this way.

So we have had to learn to just delete twice or answer once and delete the
second one or some-such.  Hitting the delete key really not that arduous

Hi michael,

at first: Why do you answer to the list, some other persons and my
private mail-address? I am reading and writing the the list and doens#T
need the same message twice.

I have tried it with German date-time-values and have set only
=A2 - A1
... and it returns 06:50:00


That would give difference in hours only, but would not give the days
This is cells L1-M7 Right of ___ is column M contents.

OK, need the day as a separate value:

ABRUNDEN is the German Name for the function. Could be it is named FLOOR
in the English version.

HH:MM gives the hours and minutes without the days.
