How do you set the default value for the combo box to be a blank so the user is force to make a choice from the dropdown list. I can't make the first choice in the list be blank except for using " " quotes marks. I want to check the value to not be blank before the user can exit the form.

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

By default in Notes the first value is blank. But if you see in web the default value is the first value from the combobox. If your requirement is to show default as blank value, then you can write in the combobox formula as: @if (@clienttype=”Web”;””:varlist;varlist)
where the varlist is the list of values from @dblookup or from some formula.
Hope this works for you.
