How to set the value of a field to the database content and then the validated entry?

Sleepless nights with this one.... :(

The database requires an image to be uploaded. Are you saying that there is no way to require the user to upload an image?
"You can't maintain the file upload field value after failed validation, so they will have to re-browse to the uploaded images they want if the validation fails."

Can't I just set a "Required / Not Blank / Selection Made" for the image field?
What happens if the validation fails for another field though? Will that image get wiped?
I need to insist that at least one image is uploaded as that's the essence of the news facility.

Yes, the UPDATE page uses a form post, from the search results page, to filter the recordset. I wasn't aware that validation wipes that post value.
Your solution there has resolved that. Thank you.

I'd appreciate clarification on the INSERT form.
Thank you.
