Hi everyone,

I am coding an application using access db. In my application I am having an email field which is saved in access db. So for this what will be the datatype for this field?
Any input mask or validation rule?? And how to do this??

Any help is kindly appreciated.

There is no specific datatype for email, so your only options are to either create a validation rule for the field that checks your entry is correct, or, the best way to do it would be to validate your email in the user interface itself. That way you can let the user know there is a problem before submitting to the database.

Hope this helps
