This is the error I'm getting.

System.DmlException: Insert failed. First exception on row 0; first error: NUMBER_OUTSIDE_VALID_RANGE, DC_geocode: value outside of valid range on numeric field: -117.3411: [DC_geocode__c]

The background on this is that I'm passing in two Decimal values(by necessity) to a method, then I try to set the latitude and longitude of a custom Geolocation field by using those two Decimal values and converting them to double values by doing the following.

DC_geocode__latitude__s = decimalvalue1.doubleValue(); DC_geocode__longitude__s = decimalvalue2.doubleValue();

I've set my custom Geolocation field to use these types of values(instead of degrees and minutes) with a precision of 15 decimal places.

Any help you could give me on trying to figure out why this error may be occurring in this instance would be great!

  • Can you write out the values of decimalvalue1.doubleValue() and decimalvalue2.doubleValue() to the debug log to check what values you are trying to set. – Mark Keats May 18 '15 at 12:48

You appear to have your latitude and longitude the wrong way around.

  • Latitudes range from -90 to 90
  • Longitudes range from -180 to 180

Your latitude is -117, so outside the valid range.

  • Wow, you're right. Guess I need to take a break! – EthanLWillis May 18 '15 at 13:38
