I Created a validation rule on Lead to not select inactive Account while conversion, here is the validation rule that throws the error
AND(IsConverted = True, ISPICKVAL(Account_Status__c,"Inactive"))'
This works perfectly if I select an inactive account, validation error is thrown, if I select active account, the lead is converted. The problem comes during the lead conversion to new account, even if the status of the account is set to default status Active, when I try to create a new Account through lead conversion, it still throws the validation error. Why is this behavior happening?
Validation error on Lead. The status of the Account you have selected is Inactive. Please select an Active Account for Lead Conversion.
