Suggestion: We recommend that you define one all-encompassing Include rule element and several restricting Exclude rule elements.
Select the type of cross-validation rule element. Valid types are:
|Include||Your user can enter any segment value combinations that fall in the following range.|
|Exclude||Your user cannot enter any segment value combinations that fall in the following range.|
Enter the low end and the high end of your segment combination range. Neither the low nor the high combination has to be a valid key flexfield combination, nor do they need to be made up of valid segment values.
Note that a blank segment value (null value) is considered to fall within a range that has one or both ends specified as a blank. However, if all of your segments require a value, you would not be able to create a combination with a blank segment anyhow.
You may use blank minimum or maximum segment values to create cross-validation rules that can test for blank segments (that are not already required to have a value). For example, if you allow a null value for your last optional segment but not the second-to-last optional segment, you would use a blank minimum or maximum value for the last segment but fill in a value (such as 000 or 999) for both the minimum and maximums for the second-to-last optional segment.
If you want to specify a single combination to include or exclude, enter the same combination in both the Low and High fields.
Disabled rules are ignored when your key flexfield validates a combination of segment values. Deleting the rule has the same effect, but you can re-enable a disabled rule.
