Required form fields

Guest

Hello. I've created a form, but would like the text form fields to be
required before a user can go forward within the form. Is this possible, and
if so, how do I do this?

The general idea for checking the content of a form field for validity
(whatever that means for the specific form field) is covered in
http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/TblsFldsFms/ValidateFFields.htm. If you just want
to make sure that the field isn't empty, then replace the line

If Len(.Result) > 0 And Left$(.Result, 3) <> "KLM" Then

with the line

If Len(.Result) = 0 Then

See http://www.gmayor.com/installing_macro.htm if needed.
