Validation Process

If the END button is pressed I am trying to validate on a number of options, this includes trying to establish whether a Masked Edit box is actually blank or not. The code I am using does not appear to be doing the job. Can anyone see the problem with it

If tmpType = ("1") And _
frmSport1.Level1.Text = ("New Funding Enquiry") And _
    frmSport1.Level2.Text = ("World Class - Revenue") And _
    frmSport1.Level3.Text = ("World Class Events") And _
    msktxtEventDate.Text = ("") Or _
    txtProjectCost.Text = ("") Or _
    cmboBiddingStaging.Text = ("") Or _
    msktxtBidDeadline.Text = ("") Then
    Msg = "You have not completed the World Class Events Additional Information!"   ' Define message.
    Style = vbOKOnly + vbCritical ' Define buttons.
    Title = "Please Confirm"  ' Define title.
    Response = MsgBox(Msg, Style, Title)
    msktxtEventDate.SetFocus
End If
   
If frmSport1.Level1.Text = ("New Funding Enquiry") And _
    frmSport1.Level2.Text = ("World Class - Revenue") And _
    frmSport1.Level3.Text = ("World Class Events") And _
    msktxtEventDate.Text <> ("") Or _
    txtProjectCost.Text <> ("") Or _
    cmboBiddingStaging.Text <> ("") Or _
    msktxtBidDeadline.Text <> ("") Then
   
'after validity checks, sends data to clipboard for retrieval by teleconnect

Clipboard.SetText frmSport1.cmboTitle + CRLF + frmSport1.txtInit + CRLF + frmSport1.txtSurname + CRLF + frmSport1.txtPosition + CRLF + frmSport1.txtOrganisation + CRLF + frmSport1.txtAddress1 + CRLF + frmSport1.txtAddress2 + CRLF + frmSport1.txtAddress3 + CRLF + frmSport1.txtAddress4 + CRLF + frmSport1.txtPostcode + CRLF + frmSport1.txtTelephone1 + CRLF + frmSport1.txtTelephone2 + CRLF + frmSport1.ComboCallertype + CRLF + frmSport1.txtRegion + CRLF + frmSport1.txtLocalAuthority + CRLF + frmSport1.txtProject + CRLF + frmSport1.txtIntentDate + CRLF + frmSport1.txtDateClosed + CRLF + frmSport1.CmboAssignTo + CRLF + frmSport1.cmboPriority + CRLF + frmSport1.txtCallDets + CRLF + frmSport1.Level1 + CRLF + frmSport1.Level2 + CRLF + frmSport1.Level3 + CRLF + frmSport1.Level4 + CRLF + txtASpartnership + CRLF + txtASForm + CRLF + msktxtEventDate + CRLF + txtProjectCost _
+ CRLF + cmboBiddingStaging + CRLF + msktxtBidDeadline

End
End If
Else
End If
End Sub

Basically what happens is that if the End Button pressed and
msktxtEventDate  
txtProjectCost
cmboBiddingStaging
msktxtBidDeadline

are all blank it does not wait for the boxes to be filled, dumps to the clipboard and ends the program.

_
    frmSport1.Level2.Text = ("World Class - Revenue") And _
    frmSport1.Level3.Text = ("World Class Events") And _ (
    msktxtEventDate.Text <> ("") Or _
    txtProjectCost.Text <> ("") Or _
    cmboBiddingStaging.Text <> ("") Or _
    msktxtBidDeadline.Text <> ("")) Then
     

Just Add two parantheses. The problem is because of the precedence of the operator

sorry a little change . Apply to the first statement

If tmpType = ("1") And _
frmSport1.Level1.Text = ("New Funding Enquiry") And _
    frmSport1.Level2.Text = ("World Class - Revenue") And _
    frmSport1.Level3.Text = ("World Class Events") And _
    (msktxtEventDate.Text = ("") Or _
    txtProjectCost.Text = ("") Or _
    cmboBiddingStaging.Text = ("") Or _
    msktxtBidDeadline.Text = ("")) Then

'Error Message

I think you need to revise your checking.

are you not checking if data is proper in the level(n) text boxes?

Thanks Pinshah, still needed a little refining to work properly. See Below

Out of interest why does the series of OR statements need double bracketing ?


If tmpType = ("1") And _
frmSport1.Level1.Text = ("New Funding Enquiry") And _
    frmSport1.Level2.Text = ("World Class - Revenue") And _
    frmSport1.Level3.Text = ("World Class Events") And _
    (msktxtEventDate.Text = ("__/__/____") Or _
    txtProjectCost.Text = ("") Or _
    cmboBiddingStaging.Text = ("") Or _
    msktxtBidDeadline.Text = ("__/__/____")) Then
    Msg = "You have not completed the World Class Events Additional Information!"   ' Define message.
    Style = vbOKOnly + vbCritical ' Define buttons.
    Title = "Please Confirm"  ' Define title.
    Response = MsgBox(Msg, Style, Title)
    msktxtEventDate.SetFocus
End If

If tmpType = ("1") And _
frmSport1.Level1.Text = ("New Funding Enquiry") And _
    frmSport1.Level2.Text = ("World Class - Revenue") And _
    frmSport1.Level3.Text = ("World Class Events") And _
    (msktxtEventDate.Text <> ("__/__/____") And _
    txtProjectCost.Text <> ("") And _
    cmboBiddingStaging.Text <> ("") And _
    msktxtBidDeadline.Text <> ("__/__/____")) Then
   
'after validity checks, sends data to clipboard for retrieval by teleconnect

Clipboard.SetText frmSport1.cmboTitle + CRLF + frmSport1.txtInit + CRLF + frmSport1.txtSurname + CRLF + frmSport1.txtPosition + CRLF + frmSport1.txtOrganisation + CRLF + frmSport1.txtAddress1 + CRLF + frmSport1.txtAddress2 + CRLF + frmSport1.txtAddress3 + CRLF + frmSport1.txtAddress4 + CRLF + frmSport1.txtPostcode + CRLF + frmSport1.txtTelephone1 + CRLF + frmSport1.txtTelephone2 + CRLF + frmSport1.ComboCallertype + CRLF + frmSport1.txtRegion + CRLF + frmSport1.txtLocalAuthority + CRLF + frmSport1.txtProject + CRLF + frmSport1.txtIntentDate + CRLF + frmSport1.txtDateClosed + CRLF + frmSport1.CmboAssignTo + CRLF + frmSport1.cmboPriority + CRLF + frmSport1.txtCallDets + CRLF + frmSport1.Level1 + CRLF + frmSport1.Level2 + CRLF + frmSport1.Level3 + CRLF + frmSport1.Level4 + CRLF + txtASpartnership + CRLF + txtASForm + CRLF + msktxtEventDate + CRLF + txtProjectCost _
+ CRLF + cmboBiddingStaging + CRLF + msktxtBidDeadline

End
End If

Hmm, By giving the End command. the VB application  will drop everything and quit. No checking can be done after that because no events will be handled.
Better use the unload routine and let the Unload events of your forms do the work :

Dim f as Form

For each f in Forms
   Unload f
Next f

This will close your app in an ordely fashon.
