I'm using a php code snippet to process the data and update the database. But, if I find an error in the data, I want to exit the code, display an error msg and NOT complete the form processing. i.e. not send the emails that get sent upon completion of the transaction.

How would I exit the snippet and signal Formidable that it should stop processing?

Formidable has validation hooks you could use. They are design to address the very problem you're trying to solve. See these pages: and

Thank you.

Yes,I knew about this, and was thinking of handling the error process a different way.

But, the lightbulb went off and doing it this way is way easier, so thanks for the inspiration.
