text box properties

P: n/a
i have a form that wont allow someone to save if certain fields are left
empty

after field.setfocus

is there a way for me to change the background color so they can see exactly
where they need to go? its a pretty large form so any xtra visual cues I
could provide would help
i guess over riding tab stops temporarly would be nice too so all they would
need to do is tab between the required fields

thnx

Sure. Me.txtWhatever.BackColor = vbRed

I'm sure that code could be written to accomplish this. It would
certainly be more involved than setting the property of a single
control though.
