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:
- Open the Project Tree window if it is not already open.
- Expand the Project Tree and select the validation rule to rename.
Design tab, in the
Edit group, click
The validation rule in the Project Tree becomes editable.
Enter a new name and press
The validation rule name is updated in the Project Tree and all fields using this validation rule are updated automatically with the new name.
