    I want to have a validation rule that enforces the use of "@" for the "email"
    field of a table.
    How is the validaton rule created? I am not very proficient in code, and
    relativelly new to Access, but I have checked the Expression Builder and I
    could not find an expression that will allow typing and undefinite amount of
    caracters before and after the '@" symbol.
    I will appreciate if someone could give me an indication of how this is
    written.

    Thank you for your help!
    Rocio

    ps. the same question has been posted in the 'programming' and 'design'
    sections.

    How about this:
    Like "?*@?*.?*"
