I posted the same question several months ago.. see: 09/21/09 02:21 PM, ID: 24749909

The solution worked fine for some reason in that database, which use the old approval database template.  Now I tried it on a field, in a doc library, I put:
@If ( @IsDocBeingSaved & @ThisValue = "";
@Failure(@ThisName + " is blank.");@Success)

on the Input Validation tab. !st it works, and I get the error message, then I get "Notes Error- field didn't pass validation formula" Then it asks if I want to Save, Cancel or Exit. I just want it to go back to the form so the user can enter the data that is missing.
