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 into. 


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
