You can not define unique value for picklist.


But yes if you want all records to have different value of picklist then you can do this by validation, but that doesn't make any sense regarding business implementation.

Hi Ankit, But i have 3 custom fields(Picklist) like

    • Partner Region
    • Partner Type
    • Partner Category   and each field contain 4 values so how can i validate kindly let me know with example asap

Thank you



Create a new field with Text data type and Make that field as UNIQUE.

Write a workflow on the same object and update the newly created field with

Partner_Region__c&''&Partner_Type__c&''&Partner_Categor__c using formula editor.
