Rename validation rule

If the name of a validation rule does not sufficiently explain its purpose, it can be renamed. For the best results, the name of any item, including a validation rule should provide some indication of that rule. For example, if a validation rule tests whether the length of a field is exactly 10 characters, the name of the rule could be "10_char" or something similar.

You can rename a validation rule by following these steps:

  1. Open the Project Tree window if it is not already open.
  2. Expand the Project Tree and select the validation rule to rename.
  3. On the Design tab, in the Edit group, click Rename Rename icon.

    The validation rule in the Project Tree becomes editable.

  4. Enter a new name and press Enter.

    The validation rule name is updated in the Project Tree and all fields using this validation rule are updated automatically with the new name.
