Summary

Creating a message:  You must fill either the Company or First Name/Last Name field...

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

v3

Operating system version

MAC OS X 10.5.8

Description of the issue

How do you create a message on a record in a "People Management" database that 1) notices when a certain 1 or 2 fields are blank, and then give you a message stating " Hello, reminder, you must enter either a First Name and Last Name or Company for the record to exist?"

Is there an easy calculation?  or is it in "validation"?

Expected result

I want a message to pop up...whenever the user does NOT enter a first name/last name or Company.

Equally, i would like to set up the same type idea for either entering a phone number or an email.

Actual result

when i input this data on the "validation" section under "no entry" - it always brings up the message 5 minutes later as i am in a completely different field or section of the database.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

same as above.

Configuration information

help?

Workaround

none.
