I have form where 7 out of 15 forms must be complete before user can save. Do you have to prompt at each text box and if so, do you use afterupdate, beforeupdate, lostfocus or onenter? Or, is there a way to flag all seven text boxes at one time? My form seems to be doing this (upon trying to save, it prompts you one text box at a time) so that you may hit "Save" 7 times and each time it tells you to enter text into another empty text box. This isn't very efficient. Also, regardless of which way you do this, can you throw focus back to the empty text box? I've attempted to do it with a textboxname.setfocus command, but it doesn't work? Any help is appreciated.
