Are there "Helpful" answers? Or multiple "Accepted" answers?

Just want to make sure that I haven't missed something obvious.  It looks like an OP can accept an answer, but there is no longer support for "Helpful" answers. Also, it looks like an OP cannot accept more than one answer, so the OP will have to choose if there are multiple correct solutions? (For example, one solution might use the DATA step, whereas another uses PROC SQL.)

Like The Highlander, there can be only one accepted solution.  But other offered ideas can receive Likes, which can be interpreted as helpful (but there is no explicit "helpful" designation).

 

It's nice if the OP responds back to say what other replies helped, but marking an Accepted Solution is really key.  That will help future "askers" to find the correct answer quickly.

OK, I understand what you are saying, and it is fine with me to have only one correct solution.  On the other hand,in SAS there are often multiple correct ways to accomplish something, so you might send that feedback to the Lithium folks for a future enhancement.
