Please Explain the Various Form Types, Plus No Validation!

Hi Brian,

It looks like I had just shut down for the night when you responded - thanks very much for responding!

WRT validation problems, I pushed the whole site over to the testing server and the page validation still failed, but while designing the form I had a "script has stopped running on this page" error while *running the Builder Wizard* which was strange. So, I started over and built another test page and now *most* of the validation is working. The "Answer" validation is consistently failing - I put a string of random characters in the field and this is never flagged as an error.

If you know why this is happening that would be great but I am also in need of help in understanding the various control types. In addition to the questions I originally posted, here are two more:

- Checkbox - What does Validation Required mean? What does Validation mean since a checkbox is either checked or not and both are legitimate states?

- Password - If I check Validation Confirm Prior Password then 1) I can't define the other parameters (# total chars, # digits, ...) and 2) when I "Apply" I get the error that is in the attached image.

Can you help me with these questions about the from control "Types" (any documentation somewhere?) and/or the "Question" validation failure?

Thanks again for offering to help over the weekend.
