    Unanswered: really easy no-brainer

    Okay

    I have a form with a save button on it. If the casetype field on the form is blank and you press the save buton a message pops up saying "please enter a casetype".

    I made the form, no one to blame but me. SO heres the question. How did i make the field mandatory?? I didnt put an if statement behind the save button. How do you make a field compulsory on a form?

    Help I think Im getting alzheimers!!

    Thanks

    Try going into design view and looking at the save button. Perhaps it has an onclick event?

    The on click event just saves the record and closes the form. Is there a way to search through all the code for the sentence "please enter"?

    Check the table that the field is in, it probably has a validation rule.

    Yep that was it alright. A validation rule on the table. Thanks for that
