    auto enter and validation


      Hi! I recently had to do a manual import and missed a couple of fields - those auto enter creation and modification fields - and it put me into an infinite loop after the import...


      It leed me to ask my self and you, of course, if it's a good practice to set auto enter fields using creation or modification (or any other) with an validation like those : not null (not empty), data type, etc.. Is it trivial at all, could we just let FMP setting are fields and not to validate them after ?

          Not sure how those validation settings would help for a case where you are importing data. Validation rules that kick in during import simply keep the record from importing at all and you can't easily tell which record didn't get imported so I'm not sure that's going to be much help in this scenario....
