Hi Rick,

It isn't really possible to make it blink. Well you could do it with a
looping script, but that wouldn't be ideal.

Another option would be to highlight the field using calcs and layered
fields, or maybe highlight the field outline using a graphic and a calc.
Check out the field borders sample file at [url]http://www.databasepros.com[/url] and
look in the bonus tab for how to achieve this.
