Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you are talking about validating it in the report’s parameter form, you need to open the property palette of the desired field, and click on the” validation trigger” property. An editor will appear, in which you can write the desired code to validate the user input. When your trigger determines that the user input is invalid, the validation trigger must return FALSE, and when the user input is valid, it must return TRUE.

But in my experience, it is better to make all validations in a Forms application rather than using the report’s parameter form, because you can build a more complex and customized parameter form.
