ACT Fields



I am using ACT 6.0. When I defined the fields I set attributes as "required field" for about 7 fields. But it seems it is not prompting for more than 5 fileds. Is there any restriction on required fields setup?

Re: ACT Fields



There are some restrictions on this and without seeing both the structure of your database and the exact field names you are trying to set here this would be difficult to say it will not work on those fields.


One of the disadvantages of setting a field as required is if you do not have data for the field when you create the record users tend to put in rubbish data just to get the record entered and then do not come back and complete the data.
