FileMakerPro10 required fields interfering with data entry.

Last Modified: 2016-03-15
I have two tables (Buildings and Cataloging) that are related and over several layouts/tabs everything is working as it should.
I created a new field (BldgNotes) in the Cataloging table, plain text, no options.
There are three fields in the table that are "Required Value"
When I add data to the new field which is on a tab all by itself it calls for data in each of the three fields with the "Required Value".
What is the link that is forcing this? Can I stop it or should I just add the "Required Value" fields to the new layout tab?
