You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.
Create a new form called frmOwners that roughly resembles the example shown below:
Don't worry about the formatting of the form
Use the BeforeUpdate event of the form apply validation so that it is impossible to save a record unless:
- The owner's name is filled in;
- The date of birth is filled in;
- The date of birth lies between 1st January 1900 and today's date.
Test that your validation works, then close and save the form.
