if(RecordType.Id = 'xxxxxxxxxxxx' && (FirstName = NULL || FirstName = " "), TRUE, FALSE)
The above formula is a Contact Validation Rule. It's supposed to stop anyone creating a contact of record type id xxxxxxxxxxxx without a first name. however it doesn't work and only works when i remove the recordtype part. Surely, because i choose the record type then enter name, salesforce knows what record type i'm using.
