Thanks for responding so quickly!
I still dont get it. Your example doesnt clarify for me.
i dont see where im setting the specific fields up in your example.
Ill be more specific with question.
SELECT COLOR (only if pebbles is selected for rocks)
I think i get lost on this conditional:
2) conditional validation - Trigger = select list, Tagert = text box, if trigger os valid = Stop validation on tager
THIS SAYS IF THE SELECT LIST IS NOT EMPTY, THEN THE 2nd LIST SHOUDL NOT BE EMPTY EITHER?
