Hey guys, I have created a text box on a form which is used to check for certain input and then based on that input the user will be taken to a certain form. However if the text box is left blank they will also be taken to the form is there anyway to prevent this?

I just can't figure out how to check for no input.

Thanks for any help.

Please post your code.

Use an 'IF' test to see if there is any data in the field.

Hi thanks for your reply, the code is along the lines of

IF :textbox = 'something'

then open_form(d:\test)

etc


I have tried if :textbox =' ' and if :textbox = NULL

however none have helped me ensure that input has to be made.

Try testing for the field NOT being null or empty. Do you WANT them to go to another form if it is empty or NOT want them to go to another form?
