    Default Field Validation

    I think this is a stretch, but is it possible to check what is entered into a field against a hidden field or something in an INI file to determine if the data being entered is valid. For example, let's say I have a field asking "who did you speak with?". There are only five possible people to speak with. When the user enters the name of the person, I would like the script to check the name entered against a list of available people. If it finds a match, the script processes OK. If no match, I'd like to return a message saying something like "Please enter the correct name"... or something to that effect. I'd rather not use a drop-down list because anyone can just select any name from the list. I want to force the user to enter the correct information. Is this possible now with the script? Thanks.
