Required field Validation Rule
Posted on 2006-11-16
In my continuing quest for an easier way to do simple field validation I started looking at the "Validation Rule" property of fields while in table design. I just can't seem to get it to pop my "Validation Text" if the field's "Required" property = Yes ... no matter what I put in the validation Rule!!!
Not Is Null
Is Not Null
My current test is on a Text field.
I don't want form code because Form_BeforeUpdate does not catch Required fields before Form_Error barfs it up and I already wrote the code to handle this but it is a royal PITA and if I can get the field validation to work in the table then I bet I can use the same for the Validation Rule for the control on a bound form.
