Create a validation rule to check that a contact is in the zip code of its account(means contact zipcode and Account zipcode should be same)

There are 2 zip code fields on the Account object, Account.BillingPostalCode and Account.ShippingPostalCode.
Account.BillingPostalCode !=  MailingPostalCode

Hai steven,

That validation rule prevents the creation of a contact whose zip code is different from the billing zip code of its account

I have no idea why this worked, but it did indeed work: ShippingPostalCode = BillingPostalCode

When I originally tried to use MailingPostalCode, the syntax checker told me that MailingPostalCode did not exist(?).
