Thanks Jason, I thought so, but thanks for clarifying.

I have tried recreating this effect on the Log In page (made by SA) but can not seem to get it to work. I tried following a suggestion from another thread which talked about creating a recordset which checked the form field value against the database, which I think I have done. In order to do this I guess I need to create a form variable which is then used in the recordset, but I have never done this before and don't know where to put the form variable in order for it to work.

It was then suggested that I create a "Show If RS Not Blank", however I don't understand how this will work, for example;

If I create a RS that checks the form against the database (Form Field = Database Column) and the entry is there, it will output the result which would activate the show if. If the entry wasn't in the DB it would send back no date which would not activate the show if.

If I change the "Show if RS is blank" then the error shows every time I load the page.

The Login Form is from SA, I also have Validation Toolkit and lots of other WA products if the helps?
