Hi Experts,

I am working with Access and VB.  I need the to enforce some constraints at the DB.  Specifically, have 4 yes/no fields in a table {F1, F2, F3, F4}.

I want the DB to enfoce the following constraint....

           IF (F1 OR F2 OR F3) = True
           THEN F4 must be true

... How can I add a constraint like this to my DB?  To be clear, I know that I can check data as it goes into the DB and validate that the user has appropriatly entered F4=True if any of the other fields are... This is not good enough - I want the DB to through an error back at them....

Thanks so much,

-TRAVIS
