validation rule Account name Diplicate

Hello dear Community,

I want to create a validation rule to avoid people creating a deuplicate account with exactly the same name ?
The error message would be : There is already an account with this name !

Do you know wich variable should I use to apply this validation rule

Thank you in advance for your precious help.

Adel

Hi Adel,

I don't think you can check for duplicates with validation rules.
