First exception on row 0; first error: FIELD_CUSTOM_VALIDATION_EXCEPTION, Account number must be 8 characters long.: [AccountNumber]

Trying to complete the "Create an approval process that validates when a Prospect Account becomes a Customer."

Challenge Not yet complete... here's what's wrong: 
There was an unexpected error in your org which is preventing this assessment check from completing: System.DmlException: Insert failed. First exception on row 0; first error: FIELD_CUSTOM_VALIDATION_EXCEPTION, Account number must be 8 characters long.: [AccountNumber]

Stephanie,

The Account record that you are trying to insert should have its name with a minimum length of 8 characters. There is a custom validation rule existing, in your Salesforce org which mandates this rule and thus causes your Account insert operation to fail.

Try inserting the Account record with a name longer than 8 characters.

For the purposes of Trailhead verification, you can temporarily deactivate the custom validation rule assigned to the Account field.

Stephanie,

Are you still facing this issue? I just read through your issue again, and seems that when Trailhead is trying to verify the implementation of your module it is failing because of the AccountNumber validation rule. 

You can deactivate the specific validation rule and try verifying the completeness of the Hands on Exercise. It should go through.

Thanks! I was also facing the same problem. Deactivating the Account validation rule from previous challenge resolved this problem.
