Required field upon meeting a condition in a form

P: 11
I have two fields that ask for a date: DOrderDate and DExpiration. I would like to set a condition that if someone enters a date in the DOrderDate field but leaves the DExpiration date blank then a message pops up and the field is required. The issue is that there is no submit button on this form and there is no guarantee that the user will tab through the fields. I know very little VB so may need some patient coaching. thanks!

Where are these fields located ?
The standard way would be to have a form with a [Cancel] and [Save] button.
When the user presses the [Save] button, then you can perform the needed testing and issue a warning. When pressing [Cancel] nothing will happen.
