Validation Rule Question

Hi guys, 

Here is the scenario, and sorry if it doesnt make complete sense......I find it hard to explain: 

I have 4 objects. Object B is a child of A (Master Detail). Object C and D are children of B (also Master Detail)

So it looks something like this: 


                                                                               A
                                                                                 
                                                                               B

                                                                       C             D


Now, I want to have a tickbox in A , which once ticked, will block editing and creation of new entries in B and C, BUT, not D.

How is this possible?

Is there another way that I must take the problem? My implementation thus far was to creat validation rules in B and C. Once I set a validation rule in C only, it will allow for creation of B entries, and once I set a validation rule in B, it will block creation of D. 

Appreciate the help!

Hi,

 

Try the below validation rule in object B

 

IF(Object_A__r.Tick_Box__c, true, false)

 

Make a validation Rule on Object C

 

IF(Object_B__r.Object_A__r.t_new__Tick_Box__c , true, false)

 

Did this answer your question? If not, let me know what didn't work, or if so, please mark it solved.
