    Hi Charlene,

    When I try to submit your form without filling them out you'll see the error messages on the fields that are needed to be accomplished. You'll noticed the screenshot below the red highlighted fields.


    Are these the errors you're looking for?

    Let us know if I misunderstood your concern.

    Kind regards.
