    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

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
