1) Make a descriptive subject line
   - For us to help you better and for later searching to help others.

2) Explain what the code is doing.

3) If errors are present, copy/paste the exact error

4) If the error points to a specific line, copy/paste that line
(note: not the entire script, as this gets overwhelming)

With this short 5 step structure to ask a question we will be far better able to help you get the problem occuring resolved.
