I am trying to modify a list entry form using InfoPath. I want to make one text field conditionally required based on the value of a lookup field. When I create this validation rule on a text field:

MyLookupField is equal to "some text" AND
MyTextField is blank

It only allows me to only type a number for the 'is equal to'. Why?

When I changed to this:

MyLookupField contains "some text" AND
MyTextField is blank

I can now type text but it still doesn't work.

What am I doing wrong?
