Reminder Time and Reminder Validation

I'm using Outlook 2003. Before a I click on Save (custom task form), I

want to be prompted that if I have a Reminder time, I need to also

check the Reminder field. I have the following validation formula, but

I get prompted no matter if the reminder field is checked or not

checked or if the reminder is none and the reminder is not checked.

([Reminder Time] <> "None") And ([Reminder] = "Off")

I tried different variations but still cannot get it to work where I

have a reminder time, but not the reminder field checked and for it to

prompt upon Save.

Thanks

Shawn

What kind of prompt do you want? A validation formula doesn't give you a

"the data looks like this -- do you want to save anyway?" prompt. It simply

prevents Outlook from saving the item .

Note that a validation formula must return True if the data is "good" and

False if the data is "bad." Also, the Reminder field can have a Boolean

value of True or False, not "Off" or "True," which are strings.
