What does 'field failed validation' mean?

The error message 'field failed validation' means that one or more required fields on the invoice are not coded. When clicking Submit for Approval, the error message will appear and the required field that is not coded will be highlighted in red. In the example below, the Invoice Number field is not coded. 


How to resolve the 'field failed validation' error?

Code a value to the empty field, and then the invoice will be able to be submitted for approval successfully.
