Validation Rule

Experts, in a validation rule, can I refer to field within the table?   I am referring to [Type] within the field  [ExpectedDisbRecdDate].  Not sure if a rule like this is better placed in a form.

for example:

if [type] = "JBIC",>Date()+30,<Date()+25
the error I get is "enclose text data in quotes"

thanks

not really sure what you are trying to accomplish here, but,

try something like this

IIf([type]="JBIC",>Date()+30,<Date()+25)

if you are using A2010 or greater, data macro may work for you..

just tried what you have in a table and i am not surprise that it will not accept the entry in the validation rule property..

perhaps use the validation or setting the values of the Datefield using a form.
