This is a certiorari. The facts are set out in Cartwright v. Alpha Transp. Service, 159 Ga. App. 296 (283 SE2d 282) (1981)
. The Court of Appeals held that the provisions of Code Ann. 81A-104 (d) relating to personal service of process are unavailable in a garnishment case. We reverse.
"The methods of service provided in this section [81A-104] may be used as alternative methods of service in proceedings in the court of ordinary and in any other special statutory proceedings . . ." Code Ann. 81A-104 (j). (Emphasis supplied.) Code Ann. 46-103, relating to the method for service of process on a garnishee, does not expressly state that the personal service provisions of Code Ann. 81A-104 (d) are unavailable. Code Ann. 81A-104 (j) provides that "service shall be sufficient when made in accordance with the statutes relating particularly to the proceeding or in accordance with this section [81A-104]." (Emphasis supplied.) See also Code Ann. 81A-104 (i). These code sections are not in conflict and Code Ann. 81A-181, which provides for exceptions to the applicability of the Civil Practice Act, is inoperable. See Dept. of Transp. v. Ridley, 244 Ga. 49 (257 SE2d 511) (1979)
; Navaho Corp. v. Stuckey, 141 Ga. App. 271 (233 SE2d 217) (1977)
