    Very Misc - need suggestions for proper text on a pop up box

    Hello,

    I have a warning message for users who Complete a request but don't enter the "Actual Completion Date" - I have this as text (below) the bolded text is one my peeves but I also feel like I'm using the word "Complete" too many times. I welcome your suggestions.



    Code:
     r = MsgBox("You have changed the Estimate Status to Complete however the Actual Completion Date has not been entered. Please enter the Completion date to Complete this request.", vbOk, "Complete Estimate")
    Thanks in advance.

    Maybe this:

    Code:
     r = MsgBox("You have marked the Estimate Status as 'Complete', however the Actual Completion Date has not been entered. Please enter the Completion Date to accomplish this.", vbOk, " N E E D  I N P U T ")
    or:

    Code:
    r = MsgBox("You have marked the Estimate Status as 'Complete', however the Actual Completion Date has not been entered.", vbOk, " C O M P L E T I O N   D A T E   M I S S I N G ")

    Or "Please enter the Completion Date to complete this request."

    I went with:
    "You have marked the Estimate Status as 'Complete', however the Actual Completion Date has not been entered. Please enter the Completion Date."

    Thanks!

    shorter - If estimate status is complete, a completion date is required.
