option value validation message RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, CRM provides the following validation message when attempting to use an optionset value that does not use the configured prefix:

    "The option value you specified does not use this solution's option value prefix (10,000). You should enter a number between 100,000,000 and 100,009,999. Do you want to continue?"

    However, this message seems a bit off at first glance. If the solution's option value prefix is 10,000 then why would I need to enter a number between 100,000,000 and 100,009,999? Why wouldn't a value of 100,001 be acceptable? Is this simply a CRM validation message that needs to be updated, or is there a different expected relationship or pattern between the configured prefix and optionset value that I'm not aware of?

  • Hi,

    When we say prefix this means that it is a constant value for all the records. For example you have a prefix for the quote id such as "Quo", and this is unchanged for all quote ids such as Quo1001, Quo1002,...! Hence, when you say a prefix for the optionset values it means that the first 5 digit is constant, such as 100000001, 100000002! So you could easily find out the solution in which this optionset is placed. This helps a lot on organizations where you have lots of solutions in finding the proper solution in customization.
