Validation Rules are cool

Hi Formula Authors,
If you like formulas, I wanted to make a quick plug for validation rules, a cool new feature in Winter '07 that uses formulas to define data validation conditions that can prevent invalid data from getting into salesforce.

If you are already familiar with formulas, you will be able to create validation rules in a snap.

For more info, take a look at these resources:
