    I have a page that has gone through a lot of editing. It has many text
    box and validator controls, and one compare validator just isn't working.
    I have the control to validate set, and control to compare set, and the
    page just behaves like the validator isn't there.
    Can anyone give me any ideas on what I need to do to make this work? It
    used to work and stopped, and I've even deleted and recreated both the
    text control and the validator using both the same and new IDs but with
    no luck. Help!

  2. Hi,

    Maybe your "sumbit" controls are set to >> CausesValidation = False

    A CompareValidator will only fire is something is entered into the TextBox.
    If you also require a value to be entered add a RequiredFieldValidator.
