HELP!!! Trigger running for validation rules

Hi i created last week validation rules. And they was running.
Today they are not more running.

The Problem is I added a trigger befor insert, and salesforce first try the trigger and after that the validation rules.
What can I do to impose to test first validation rules and after that to run may trigger?

Do you have an Idea?

Hi Magda,
First - the order of triggers/validation/workflow is set in SF and follows the following process:
1. Before triggers
2. System validation occurs, verification of required fields along with any user-defined
validation rules
3. After triggers
4. Assignment rules
5. Auto-response rules
6. Workflow rules
7. Escalation rules
8. Post-commit logic (such as sending emails etc)
So - it would seem - that it may work for you to simply change your 'before' trigger - to an 'after' trigger ?
Unless there is some complexity that you've not revealed in your question?
Good luck!


thx for your answer...

But my trigger need to be a before trigger, because i change a value of an object field....

I find the solution.............
Add a condition to change the value....

And the trigger change the value of the field only if the condition is TRUE

Thank you

It was a very easy Problem...
