I use personalized validation rules on my forms. However, if a field needs to have data (ie may not be empty nor null) and there is no default value and the user uses TAB to enter the data then the validation rule does not kick in and the form will save an empty field. Is there a way to force a 100% the validation rule even if the user has not entered any data (and just uses the tab key)??

Thank you for any help!
Regards Michael
