I have a text box that I enter a number in.  In the lost focus event it performs a lookup to find a record with that number and populate the form with the values.  If the number is not a valid record number then I want to pop up a message and return focus to the textbox. I have tried everything I can think of but cannot get that to happen. Suggestions?
