I'm confused. The description in your latest message doesn't match what you
originally posted. Are you trying to do *both* validation and appending text
from one field to the value of another? Or are you taking the values of two
fields to create the value of a third?
FWIW, I have found over more than a decade of work, that VBScript behind a
custom form is not beyond anyone's ability. I would encourage you to read
through the examples and then ask specific questions if there's something
you don't understand.
