Salesforce Trailhead Challenge: Create a validation rule to check that a contact is in the zip code of its account

Salesforce Trailhead Challenge

Create a validation rule to check that a contact is in the zip code of its account.
To complete this challenge, add a validation rule which will block the saving of a new or updated contact if the contact is related to an account and has a mailing postal code (which has the API Name MailingPostalCode) different from the account’s shipping postal code (which has the API Name ShippingPostalCode).
  • Name the validation rule Contact must be in Account ZIP Code
  • A contact with a MailingPostalCode that has an account and does not match the associated Account ShippingPostalCode should return with a validation error and not be saved
  • The validation rule should ONLY apply to contact records with an associated account. Contact records with no associated parent account can be added with any MailingPostalCode value. (Hint: you can use the ISBLANKfunction for this check)
 Error Condition Formula:

AND (

NOT(ISBLANK( AccountId )),

MailingPostalCode <> Account.ShippingPostalCode

)
