      validation in checkbox field with values list

      Post

           Hello,  Newbie on my part.

           I set up a checkbox field that uses a values list.

           Every time I change an entry in the field (check or uncheck) a validation pop-up occurs.  Is there a way to turn this off?   It is not needed and I tend to turn these on an off quite a bit and it is taking a lot of time.  Only options seem to be "always" or "changed values"

               Open Manage | database | fields, find the field definition for the field where editing a value pops up the validation message and remove the validation field option responsible.

               But which field has this setting isn't always obvious and there are ways to have a message similar to a validation error message pop up via a script performed by a script trigger.

               You may have a field with an auto-enter calculation that references the field you edited that also has a validation field option. So editing the first field trips an error in the second.

                 thanks.  your suggested had me relook at the settings.  I had doubled references to the values list in the manage database and again in the layout.  removed the auto enter aspect and the bothersome notification went away.  Thanks.
