  • You only want to restrict lookup field on contact or do you also don't want to restrict contact's child record – Tushar Sharma Feb 5 at 5:58
  • means if the contact status is Pending then i dont want to associate this contact to any other entity. – sudhanshu Feb 5 at 6:01
  • Like from account if i add relationship and if contact is Pending then it should throw an error – sudhanshu Feb 5 at 6:02

You can use a Validation Rule like this, e.g. on Case Object:

AND(
    NOT(ISBLANK(ContactId)), 
    ISPICKVAL(Contact.Status__c, 'Pending')
)

If you want to run this rule only on Contact Person (Lookup) change, you can add one additional check:

AND(
    NOT(ISBLANK(ContactId)), 
    ISCHANGED(ContactId),
    ISPICKVAL(Contact.Status__c, 'Pending')
)

Please let me know if it helps.

Best, Stefan
