Attributes Description
allowBlank (Allow Blank) A boolean value indicating whether the data validation allows the use of empty or blank entries. '1' means empty entries are OK and do not violate the validation constraints.

The possible values for this attribute are defined by the W3C XML Schema boolean datatype.
error (Error Message) Message text of error alert.

The possible values for this attribute are defined by the ST_Xstring simple type (§22.9.2.19).

- Chinese Simplified
- Chinese Traditional
- Japanese
- Korean
- When imeMode is set, the input for the cell can be restricted to specific sets of characters, as specified by the value of imeMode. See the simple type referenced below for additional details.

When imeMode is set but the application's language is not one of the languages listed above, then the default value is noControl.

The possible values for this attribute are defined by the ST_DataValidationImeMode simple type (§18.18.19).
