After a bit of experimenting, it seems that the OnValidate is triggered once 
you leave the dbEdit box and it is before the Post is committed. This means 
that you get a message directly after the box you have just entered the data 
This words great for data validation across many forms, but, it tells you the 
error, however it does not does not return you the box you have just left. Is 
there a way to put the cursor back to the dbEdit box if an error is encountered 

Along a similar line, is there a way to find where the cursor is within a 
string in and edit box ?

Thanks Wallace
