pull down

Hi,

I have the pull down so that the user must select what's available, but how
can I force a user not to leave a pull down blank. I've tried Default Value
but it doesn't work.

Thanks,
Joel

What's the context? Is the Combo Box (the real name of the control) bound to a
table field that you're updating, or an unbound control to select a record for
editing and viewing, or what?

Use the Before Update event of the form to set focus back to the combo box.
You can also add a validation rule to both the table and the form, which the
user won't be able to ignore.
