Mass Maintenance

Update Validation Messages

On the Template tab of the Parameters page, change the messages that display for four types of validation failures related to errors entered in a spreadsheet generated by Mass Maintenance (when importing data from a spreadsheet) or errors entered on a data entry page.

Refer to Import a File at the Request-Role Level for more information.

These validation failures include:

  • When a list box validation fails and the list box does not have a Where clause set
  • When a list box validation fails and the list box has a Where clause set
  • When a required column validation fails
  • When a check box validation fails

These validations must be enabled. Refer to Enable Role Validations for more information.

To update validation messages:

  1. Select Setup > Parameters on the Navigation pane.
  2. Click the Template tab.
  3. Click Edit.

    View the field descriptions for the Parameters page.

  4. Update the messages in the fields under System Validation Messages.

    NOTE: Do not change the value #Column#. This value will be replaced with the column name when the message displays.

  5. Click Save.
