Can some explain or provide some links on the differences between record level and Column level validation and how to distinguish which is which.

I've never heard of either. Can you provide some context please?

You don't perform validation in queries, but rather forms are the place for that normally.

wondering if you meant to post your question in the Excel forum, rather than the Access forum?

I'm thinking record level may be referring to the table definition. For example, a required field could be defined in the table itself as opposed to on the data entry form.

I think the preferred method is keep the logic in the table itself to a minimum.

Perhaps you mean record or field validation?

I agree that more context, or a sample showing readers what you are dealing with, would be helpful.

Good luck with your project!
