how to make the Salutation field required on Contacts

I need to make the Salutation field (Mr. Ms. Mrs, Dr. etc) required on contacts but the field does not show up on the page layout to make it required.

 

So I thought about doing a validation rule that it cannot be empty but since it is a picklist, I get stuck on the ISPICKVAL thing.

 

Its probably real simple - can someone open my eyes for me?

 

Thanks,

Jane

Duh - I KNEW it was too simple and finally figured it out:

ISPICKVAL( Salutation , "")

Not sure how relevant this will be but you can now use the TEXT() function on picklist fields, might help you overcome the ISPICKVAL problems you're experiencing.
