Validate Email Addresses in Microsoft Access
In this video, we'll discuss why you shouldn't use an Input Mask for email addresses. Instead, I'll show you how to use a Validation Rule to catch most incorrect email addresses.
Wade from San Francisco, California (a Platinum Member) asks: I just watched your video on Input Masks. It was very helpful. Thank you. Is there any way to set up an Input Mask for an email address? I've Googled a few things, but nothing seems to work. Thanks.
Members will learn how a simple validation rule will catch the majority of bad email addresses, but not all. We will write a custom function in VBA to validate most possible email addresses using the rules from the majority of Internet mail servers.
