In inherited a sharepoint site from another developer is no longer around. There are several fields on the form.
I checked the fields validation properties and CompareTo is set to "None". The fields do not appear to have any validation rules. But the fields are still required and I don't know why. The fields are not required in the SharePoint column settings.
What I did was to remove one of the fields and add it back to the form using List Columns and that seemed to have removed the requirement for that field.
But I would still like to know what is causing those other fields to be required. Any ideas?
