I have a sentence:

"If you tab past the third field without entering a check mark in
either of the three fields, a message is displayed."

Does either only apply when you have two choices or can I use it if
there are three or more choices? Should I be using "any" instead of
"either"? It is important that I keep the mention of "three fields"
in the senetence.

Thanks...I'm sure the answer is taught in Writing 101, but right now,
I'm lucky if I can recall my name, let alone the answer to this question.
