Email address input mask

Email address input mask

Using Access 2010

Does anyone have or know of an input mask for email addresses?

trying to think of a way to include one but struggling to get around the protocols and variables that can be contained within any address.

It seems a bit of a mine field given that the @ must be included somewhere, the ".com" suffix can be variable in lengths and "period" markers, and the whole thing can have any number of characters!

Thanks in advance, if its not possible I would rather not waste my time looking to create one!

RE: Email address input mask

Here are some ways of doing it

Have fun.

A bus station is where a bus stops. A train station is where a train stops. On my desk, I have a work station.

RE: Email address input mask

Thanks Andy, I thought about doing a validation like that but before I embarked on that journey assumed there might be some form of input mask readily available - but it seems not.

Thanks again
