When you update State Name for an Organizational Structure, system throws below error message:

X is not a valid value for this field. Enter a valid value

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Organizational Management work center.
  2. Select Edit Org Structures.
  3. Highlight an Org Unit.
  4. Go to Address tab.
  5. Update/Add the Address along with State Name.


The cause for the issue is that you might have selected Enter key just by entering the character X instead of full state code.


So, in order to choose the value from the error screen. Select the value from the drop down or type the correct state name and press Enter key in the keyboard. This will refresh the screen and will accept the new value.
