    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 "?*@?*.?*"

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!
