Could you please advise and give an example of a validation rule to help me make a custom field required when picklist value is selected.

I have a picklist called Type and a custom field called Description.

The Description field should become required only if picklist value “Other” is selected.

Could you please advise and give an example of how such restriction can be achieved?

Regards,

Dilyan

The Validation rule for this would be like below

ISPICKVAL(Type, "Other") && ISBLANK(Description__c)
