When deploying our account custom fields to the org through ant we have the following error:
1. objects/Account.object (Account.ValidatedBillingPostalCode__c) -- Error: limit exceeded (line 121, column 13)
2. objects/Account.object (Account.ValidatedBillingState__c) -- Error: limit exceeded (line 101, column 13)
3. objects/Account.object (Account.ValidatedBillingStreet__c) -- Error: limit exceeded (line 112, column 13)
4. objects/Account.object (Account.ValidatedShippingCity__c) -- Error: limit exceeded (line 3,

Subsequently various other components fail because they are dependent on the account fields. No existing custom fields are visible in the accounts > fields section of the org setup.

Please assist

  • Did you check your org data storage limit ? – karthikselva Feb 18 '16 at 17:12
  • Org Data storage limit is there – cloudy-ritz Feb 18 '16 at 17:23
  • Did you check whether the data passed exceeds the data types length? Can you post the data type and length of the populated data – karthikselva Feb 18 '16 at 18:34
  • It is not data storage issue because it is happening while deploying. what type of field is this? It seems like that you are hitting field limit in PROD – Himanshu Feb 18 '16 at 18:38

    As @Himanshu said, you may be hitting the #of custom fileds allowed on Account. You'll need to delete/erase unneeded fields first, then deploy the new fields – cropredy Feb 21 '16 at 0:05
