            isService = true;
        if ( reslrdistdiscount <> null && isService == true)
            NSP_Margin_Schedule__c NMS =  [ Select Distributor_Discount__c From NSP_Margin_Schedule__c 
                                           where  Reseller_Discount__c = :reslrdistdiscount and

            return NMS.Distributor_Discount__c;
            return 0;

Hi Sudhir,

You can solve this problem in two ways:

1.> You need to give some value of  'Reseller_discount_rate__c' field.For this you will open your record and give some value and save.

2.>open object ->Open Reseller_discount_rate__c field and Required field should be unchecked.
Because you are getting error due to validation on it.

If it will useful .please mark it as a best answer.

If you will face any problem let me know.



Hi Dileep, 

  Thanks for your responce this is not a required field so cannot make it required. Alternative way the methods what am doing is a caculation which will update other fields since Reseller_discount_rate__c is stored as null it is accepting null value during call of method can you suggest me how to default it to 0 if is null
