Hi all,


I am super pleased to announce the winner of the 2017 Forum Superhero competition is none other than Ron AKA @ronatbas!


Ron has been one of our most prolific MYOB partners on the forum. While Ron is known to have a particular interest in payroll related queries, with over 3700 Posts and 574 Solutions, he has clearly demonstrated that he is an all round expert of MYOB software and services.


A massive congratulation to Ron on a well deserved win of the $400 gift card!


Congratulations also to Gavin AKA @gavin12345 for winning the second prize of $150. Gavin’s knowledge of MYOB software and services is second to none. His detailed responses to some complex posts clearly show is extensive knowledge of MYOB products.

@BooksInTheCloud @Suja_P


Thankyou for the congratulations, I have a cunning plan that involves meeting up with Gavin and whisky.


Seriously I enjoy the forum, not because of any prize that may become available. What continuously blows me away is the knowledge of others. I look at Gavin, who probably  knows more about the backroom than some on MYOB tech staff, a recent private query had him explaining the hexadecimal behind it. Wow!  Then there is Mike who I reckon set some sort of record recently in sorting out a 'send to excel problem' that went for pages and pages of back and forth. Literally by about page two they were well over my head in excel. When it comes to Essentials I am not there, but between Kym double underscore Y ( a right pain when you are using a search and forget the double) and Renae in the Cloud  who always put up educational responses.

The three threads that Suja has acknowledged are all worthy of note. I hope that it will further encourage @AnnaH  to drop into the forum with some more insights on the WIne Industry and its tax treatment.


For me, a good session on the forum is when I have been able to help someone and when I have learnt something.
