Errormessage "A field requires a Value"

Hi,

I have a custom form region in Outlook 2007 defined. It worked fine as long as I only used Custom Fields bound to my controls. Now I

decided to use the "Subject" Field on the form. Since then. When I create a new item and choose "Save and Close" I get an error

message that "one field on the form requires a value" although I have entered a value into the Subject Control. I really have no

idea what the problem is.

All the best

The symptoms suggest that one or more fields have simple validation (i.e.

require a validation) set on them, not necessarily the Subject field. Did

you perhaps add a field, set validation, then later remove that field?

It's best never to use simple validation, but instead to use a validation

formula and an explicit validation message to the user that gives the name

of the field under validation.

I enabled for the subject field that it requires content, but I disabled it again. Any idea what I could do?

I'd check and make sure that validation setting is really and truly

disabled. You wouldn't be getting the warning if it weren't still active.

I did this several times. I even deleted the control an added it again from Fieldchooser. Also it does not place the curso in any

specific control after the message.

Deleting the control won't change the validation setting, which is stored as

part of the property. If you've checked and double-checked the Subject

property, maybe the problem is somewhere else, on a different property,

perhaps even one whose control you removed earlier. That would certainly fit

the symptoms.

How can I check the valiation setting of a field besides the settings dialog of a control?

I don't know of any other method. When simple validation is used, it doesn't

leave any indicator in the UserProperty.ValidationFormula property.

However, the UserProperties collection will contain any standard properties

that have had validation set on them, so iterating that collection and

getting a list of the properties might provide a clue.
