Rule 40104 - Duplicate Section

Rule Type Rejection

Validated Data


An undeleted section must be unique based on School Year, School Code, Section Term Code, Primary Delivery Method, Instructional Language, Delivery Schedule, Section Description, and Local Section ID.

Effective Period

  • This validation rule is in effect for all school years.

Additional Notes

(MS) July 23 - This rule already excluded deleted sections from the check but the description did not specify that so there was confusion. Modifying the description so that it specifically states deleted Sections must be excluded.

NOTE: This rule is also implemented on the indexed view of the database. Any changes to this rule must also be implemented at the database level.


When this validation rule is triggered, the following message is returned:

Duplicate Section. This section has already been defined.
