> hi everyone
> I created a validation rule for a field in a table, it worked perfect using the normal browse command but I faced a problem when i linked this table to a grid control in a form. when I insert a wrong figure in this filed which fires the validation message, I can no more scroll through the table using the ENTER key nor the arrow keys, all I can do is to go to another cell using the mouse and have the previous cell still highlighted...... did anyone face this problem and how to solve it??
> thank you


You appear to have used a grid for data input. This is not a good idea as many people over the years have found out! Put individual fields on the form and handle any errors in your save routine. I would also advise against using the table rules. It's much better to create business objects which host all your application logic.
