Hello everyone, I have an Access question.

I have two date fields (field 1 & field 2), and both are formatted for "General Date". Since they are used in a calculation of Date and time, I need both segments to be entered.

What expression can I input into the "Validation Rule" field in the "Field Properties" section of the Design View page so that the rule doesn't allow data unless it is mm/dd/yyyy hh:mm am/pm? The users are entering one part or another, but not both, and I would like to prevent that. I have seen validation rules for date or time, but not both.

Suggestions are welcome.

Thanks again,

Regards,

Horacio

You can specify how the date & time (or whatever) are entered by entering it in "input mask". It can be really frustrating for some people, though, because their input will be refused until they get it right. Give them an example if possible.
