Hi,

I have a select list. I've added my options to the ''.

It seems that the first item in the list is selected by default.

i was wondering if there is an option that adds a 'Please Select' option. This would need to be treated as the field not being filled in, as these are mandatory fields but i dont want 'Please select' to be treated as the field being filled in.

regards,

paul

    In the List of Values definition set the "Display Null Value" to "Yes".  Put "Please Select" in the "Null Display Value" field.  Then add an Item Validation to not allow null values for the item.
