Thanks for sharing your story, and welcome!

The 3-strike policy sounds ridiculously arbitrary in the context of your overall contributions, but I'm sure there will be long-term upside as you continue building your skills and projects. Look forward to seeing those advice/tutorial posts in the future.

Thanks, I appreciate the kind words. I actually have quite a few Excel tutorials written / on YouTube already, I just haven't posted them yet. I wasn't sure how many people on here would benefit from Excel instead of code tutorials.

I agree about the 3 strike policy, working from home was also strictly prohibited even though they made sure I was given a laptop instead of a desktop for mobility. Oh well.

What it came down to is that my report was exposing / assigning blame for the previous week's invoice errors (Out of Stocks, Wrong Product Delivered etc.).

So if Janice forgot to place an order for bananas and 120 customers ordered bananas that week & didn't get them she would get hit with 120 errors, which doesn't reflect well on her.
