Does anyone know how FileMaker determines the sequence when doing validations on many fields? For example, if there are 10 fields all set to be "not empty" I expect FileMaker to validate field 1, then 2, 3 etc. This does not always happen. Sometimes it validates fileds 1, 2 and 3 then 7 then 4, 5, 6 to 8, 9 and 10. At first I thought it was controlled by the tab order but this is not the case. I think it may have something to do with the field order in the define fields dialogue perhaps?
