What version of SharePoint is this? Is it a 3rd party product? Do you have access to codebehind/front-end files? – Daniel Ziga Nov 8 '11 at 12:07
Sorry I should have provided more information. This is sharepoint 2010. It is out of the box functionality (we have just skinned it). There are no code behind/font end files this is default sharepoint behavior. – Burt Nov 8 '11 at 12:13

I have the same problem here at work, please someone answer. Mine is the message "Cannot be blank" on every field that I'm about to put data in, it's annoying and covering the field that I'm looking at! Please help! Thank you.
