OK, I've got everything working on this page except one thing.
I had to move the email recordset code up the page and I had the filter element wrong so that was the problem with the validation.
The only thing not working now is that it doesn't maintain the checks in the boxes if the page fails on the duplicate email address error (the Validate Show If behavior) and I haven't figured that out yet.
It does maintain the checks if it fails on any of the other fields though. Any ideas on direction to point me in for that?
Thanks for the help again,
