No Error Msg w Input Wizard Upload Images   Link   Email  
Hendra Gunawan

Hi, when using the Input Wizard prescribed from Lesson 4 0:50 to 2:20, I got an error message if I leave like (123) 123-123_ but no error message when I leave (___)123-123 or (12_) 123-123.

Why did I not get the error message when leaving the area code incomplete?

What is the input mask that you're using? What do the individual characters of the input mask mean?
Scott Axton

Input mask for Phone   !\(999") "000\-0000;;_
The 9 in the mask tells Access that it is not required but if you enter something in that position it has to be a number.
The 0 tells Access that, if the whole field is not empty, a number is required in that position.

In this course the input masks are just introduced.  There is a lot more you can do and over the courses you will be given greater detail.

Ehem... Scott... I was trying to get her to figure it out on her own. LOL

But thanks. :)

One good thing I did answer your question correctly!

LOL

I applaud your effort... but remember, it's always best to let them figure stuff out for themselves... give 'em a nudge, not a push. :)

Thanks Scott, I got it. I have changed the Input Mask by replacing 999 with 000 and that solved the problem.
