Validation rule for Project Profile


We have already created four project coding mask (EX-2828/BDC/00000) and fifteen of Project Profile. And only eight project profiles are using by define the project coding mask, others as per Project specific of any starting four number.

We were maintained the validation rule as below

Prerequisite - -PROJ-PSPID :5-8: = 'BCDS'

Check - PROJ-PROFL = '0000010'

Because of this validation system was allowing any stating four numbers (ex- 1235, 3528, 5285) in project def. So we want to continue the same project coding mask (Ex.1235/BCDS/000000) which has already created. But it is not possible to create the same project coding mask without delete all created the previous project.

Because of that we are trying to build the new validation rule.

Prerequisite – PROJ-PROFL = '0000010'

Check - PROJ-PSPID :1-4: = '1235' AND PROJ-PSPID :5-8: = 'BCDS'

After this validation rule, system is not allowing to save the project and given the error message. But when we are give already created the project coding mask (Ex-2828), then allow to saving the project.

Please suggest how to build the validation rule.
