Are validation rules packagable?

I have a package that adds some custom fields to one of the standard object types (the Opportunity object). These fields have custom validation rules associated with them. When I view the validation rule within my Developer Edition instance where I created the package, I see the symbol next to the validation rule that indicates it is contained within my package, however, when I deploy the package to a different Salesforce instance, the fields are added to the Opportunity object, but the validation rules are not present. Has anyone encountered problems with packaging validation rules associated with custom fields?

Validation rules are included in the package with Custom Objects, but not Standard Objects like Opportunity.




Thanks. That explains it. Not exactly the answer I was looking for :smileysad:
