Validations in workflow

Hi,

I m working on MDM5.5 SP5.

I have used following document to create ISBN validation:

<b>Parsing and Validating Numbers(Check Digits) in MDM 5.5</b>

https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/docs/library/uuid/34ae996e-0901-0010-4691-99a50a6741b5

Now when i execute this validation manually it give me error when ISBN number is wrong.

But when i assign the same validation to Workflow, my workflow proceed even if number is worng.

It gives me error only if i keep ISBN field blank.

can anybody explain me how validations work with workflows???

Thanks,

Maheshwari.

    Hi Michal,

    I have given Validation name itself.

    And what does he mean by "try to SAVE the same with other steps too."????

    Thanks,

    Maheshwari.

    From what you've described, you're checking 2 things:

    1) is the ISBN empty

    2) is the ISBN formatted correctly

    Are these checks executed by 2 different validations?

    Also, all validations executed within a workflow should be set to execute automatically (i.e. "Automatic Execution" is set to either Warning or Error).

    HTH,

    Mark
