Understanding Validations Errors

This is a table of common validations error messages and their meaning. To learn more about what validations are and how to generate, please read the article Document, Project, and Section Validations.

The following table lists errors which may cause recalculation, extending validation time and possible requiring you to verify values. Recalculation may also occur if a formula is too complex to calculate in a single task

Error Number Notification Message Resolution
107 Invalid formula. Please update formula in document. Check that the formula in the cell is referencing cells with values and that all function names are spelled correctly.
111 An element contains at least one usage that could not be found. Resolved automatically, usage location information is cleaned up.
200 Value input scale for text link has been updated. Please verify value. Check link formatting for correct display. And re-run Validation.
201 Link in text with a format type 'Percent' must have an 'Entered In' scale of 'Ones.' Please correct 'Entered In' scale in source location. Change the link format to 'Accounting' and make sure the 'Entered In' value is set to 'Ones', and then change the link format back to 'Percent'.
202 Updated invalid 'Entered In' scale on text link. Please verify value. Check link formatting for correct display. And re-run Validation.
203 Broken link. Please review and re-link. The source location for a destination link cannot be found. Remove and Re-link to the new location.
204 Link detected in empty text. This will not prevent filing. Unlink the blank space and re-link the correct source location.
205 Document Optimization. No action needed. Re-run Validation to clear notification. See issue reference guide for more details.
206 User attention required. ISO 8601 date formatting is not permitted in a filing package. To fix, please update the formatting of this link. You need to correct this issue in the document. This particular date format cannot be filed, the date format must be manually changed to an acceptable filing date format.
207 This list sequence appears to be invalid or out of order. Please review and correct this issue in the document. Verify the sequence of the list and correct it as needed.
208 The list item does not have any valid formatting rules. Please review and correct this issue in the document. Inspect the list an ensure proper formatting rules are applied to each list item.

336 The global precision overridden data was out of date and needs to be updated. You need to update this in the document. The Values set for this GPBO are stale and need to be manually corrected by the user.
350 User attention required. This table cell is referenced in a formula and has Entered In set to something other than Ones, but is formatted as Automatic, which does not scale the number when used in the formula. To fix either set the Entered In of this cell to Ones or change the format of the number to Accounting, Currency, or Number. You need to correct this issue in the document. The table cell is set to automatic but the entered in value isn't set to ones. To fix, reset the entered in to ones and verify the value, or change to something other than automatic
351 User attention required. This table cell has a formula and has Entered In set to something other than Ones, but is formatted as Automatic, which does not scale the formula result. To fix either set the Entered In of this cell to Ones or change the format of the cell to Accounting, Currency, or Number. You need to correct this issue in the document. The formula cell is set to automatic but the entered in value isn't set to ones. To fix, reset the entered in to ones and verify the value, or change to something other than automatic
352 This table cell has number precision (decimal digits) set, but is formatted as Automatic, which does not get applied to the number when used in a formula. To fix either update the number precision of the referenced cell or change the format of the number to Accounting, Currency or Number. The table cell is set to automatic on a cell with precision set. You cannot have a cell with precision set and have it set to automatic so either precision has to be turned off or the cell type has to be changed to something other than automatic.
354 Empty cell detected in chart data series. There is an empty cell in this chart that must have a value for the chart to be rendered correctly.
355 Non-numeric cell detected in chart data series. You need to correct this issue in the document. Text or other non numeric data was detected where a numeric value was expected. This must be changed to a numeric value for the chart to be rendered correctly.

901 A linked document is in the trash or could not be found. Either restore the trashed document, or re-link to a new source.
902 Some checks could not be performed on this section. Please contact Wdesk support. In order to perform certain validation checks we need to render the document using the server side composition API, however attempting to do this resulted in an error. A common reason for this is the renderer hit a character it could not handle. Wdesk support should be contacted immediately as this usually means certain artifacts (e.g. PDFs) of this document will not be able to be generated.
