    Hi,
    I would appreciate any help in this area.
    I have designed a form which creates mixes for specific colors.
    Each color type has a percentage recorded to create the mix.
    I have added a calculated field at the bottom of the form to total the
    percentages.
    It all adds well and works perfect.
    What I am trying to do is, have a message box WARNING! if the total
    percentages do not equal 100%
    I have tried the Validation Rule and Validation Text and it does not seem to
    work.
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks for your time!

    Hi Luman - put an Unbound Text box on your form and (assuming your calculated
    field is call Total Percentage ) enter the following =iif([Total
    Percentage]=100,"","WARNING!")
    Depending on how you entered you percentage you may need to say = 100%
