    I have created a ticket system.

    In one table I have the fields OAP, Child and Adult.

    No field is allowed to have a greater value (but can be equal) than 4 and
    collectivly they must be equal or less than four.

    Do you know a validation method which would agree with these requirements?

    Please help!

    That was very helpful. Thank You.

    But is there any way to do it, using the validation entry in the tables?

    If not, thank you anyway!

    Yes you can do iy through the table.
    1. open the table in design view
    2. Open the table properties - From the ToolBar select View > Properties
    3. In the ValidationRule property write
    ([OAP]+[Child] +[Adult] ) < 5

    4. In the Validation text property write a ,eaningful message incase the
    value will be grater then 4

    5. GoodLuck
