      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.
