I am working on a very simple email form and I have two questions.

Firstly, is there a way to make all the fields in the form 'required'?

Secondly, is there a way to compare the text in the two email fields for an exact match. I am hoping that the Field Validator action will work using the exact string option with the name of the text field in the 'Exact String =' field of the actions palette. However, I feel that this is not going to work and as I have not quite finished the form yet I test it in a browser.

Reading the manual (such as it is) and after some web research it seems to me that this function is controlled through the Get Form Value action. There is, however, scant information on how to configure this.

If anyone can help I would be extremely grateful.

Thank you for reading this.
