When adding a new company, industry is required. However when adding a new opportunity of a company on the list, one can add the new opportunity and company without adding industry. How do I require adding industry?

I have it required that when anyone adds a new company, the industry field is required. However, when someone adds a new opportunity and adds in a new company (not on our current list), the industry field is not there when someone adds it in. How can I make it required when adding in a new company this way? 

Thank you!

I'm assuming you're referring to creating a new account for the lookup popup window.

Unfortunately, creating records from this window does not enforce validation rules or even require all required fields and thus makes your org very prone to bad data.  Because of this many Admins will disable this button all together (Setup->Customize->User Interface->Disable "Quick Create")

Quick-Create is nothing but BAd News, disable it on your SFDC Org ASAP!  If possible, go back in time and disable it sooner.  Better yet, go back and find whoever enabled it in the first place and stop them.  If that doesn't work go back even further and prevent their parents from meeting each other.   Kill it, cover it with a sack of Quick-Lime and bury it, and if it tries to crawl out of the grave smack it in the head with a shovel and bury it again.
