I know how to put in the proper validation rule for my text box in question, but I sometimes need to change the info where the validation rule is in place. Is there a way to override the rule without deleting it. Example: I enter in a date in a "Notice recieved" text box, automatically a date is entered in a "follow up inspection" text box. But I can't manually change the follow up inspection date without changing the notice recieved date. Is there a way when I enter in a date that doesnt match the validation rule to have a pop up that says "are you sure you want to put in a date that doesn't match the validation rule"?
