  • Hi CRMAG

    You can use field level validation by applying javascript to the onChange event of the crm attribute which checks against a regular expression.
    I've regularly applied this for attributes such as bank details (Account number = 8 numerical digits) 

    //Regular Expression for, "8 Numerical digits only"
    var 8numFormat=/^\d{8}$/ 
    //Check For Data on entry 
    if (crmForm.all.new_Attributename.DataValue != null)
    	//if data exists, check it's format against the expression
    	if (crmForm.all.new_Attributename.DataValue.search(8numFormat)==-1)
    		//if it does not match, Alert the user and clear the data for re-input
    		alert("Please enter a valid number using 8 numerical digits");
    		crmForm.all.new_Attributename.DataValue = null
    Hope this helps, please let me know if you get any issues :)
