    Hi Hari,

    Validations is an important feature of MDM.

    As MDM deals with Mater data it is very important that we validate this data for different rules.

    Some of the validations that can be run on the master data are:

    - To check for mandatory fields

    - To check for NULL or Non-Null Fields

    - To find a particular record using FIND options

    - To put some IF THEN contitions to make possible differnt checks on the master data.

    EG:

    IS_NOT_NULL(Material number).

    if <specify a condition> then <what to do if pass> else <wt to do if fail>

    Creating Validations on Fields will based on Business Process.

    It highly depends upon how the business is running and this decision has to be taken by Various Teams involved in the Business process.

    However, i can still give you some Ex.

    1. Account Group

    2. City

    3. Country

    4. region

    5. reconcilation Account

    6. Transportation Zone

    Hope it helps

    Kindly reawrd points if found useful

    Thanks

    Simona

    Hi Hari,

    You can check all the possible validations in the "Functions" drop down of your validation expression window.
