Thank you for your response Joshua.
I am currently utilizing validation rules to prevent a user from progressing through the form. So I believe that problem is solved.
I will use your suggestion concerning the biz-form validation.
I do have one last request. I have a question setup in the following format with a dependency:
"Do you own a car?" Yes or No
If the user selects an option then the Visible dependency shows the next question:
"Is the car red? Yes or No
The first question has no validation; however, I need it to have some type of validation so that the second question is NOT visible if the user selects the correct option.
If this is possible would I still be able to use a validation rule on the second question if it is not visible?
