Valid Values

A 1-character code, as shown in the table below:




No. Only a full-length entry is acceptable


Yes. The form field may accept a shorter-than-usual entry provided the entry conforms to the validation rule up to that point


If the ValRule is “Smith|Jones” and VA is N, then only “Smith” or “Jones” is acceptable; the abbreviations “Smi”, “Sm”, “Jon”) are not.
