    Vaildation

      Vaildation

      Post

      Hiya All,

      I have a small issue:

      I have an order form with 4 drop down boxes

      Sales Rep

      Status

      Order Type

      Dept

      when an order form is created or edited i need these drop down boxes to be vaildated they need to contain something from the dropdown list, default at start is blank.

      I would like it that the user cannot exit the page if these fields are not changed from blank.

      I have set the tab order but it seams to still not work.

      Any help would be appreciated

      Regards

          Ok,

          I think i might have fixed the issue.

          I set TAB Order 1,2,3,4 to the respective field. I then set the validation to "only during data entry" and "empty value"

          i can select all other fileds but soon as i try and do anything else then the message box appears

          I think this maybe the best way

          Regards

            You can also set a validation that requires that the data in the field be a member of the field's value list. Since a user can type info directly into a field formatted with a drop down list, you may want to set such a validation to keep them from making this mistake.
