Consider the following scenario:
You create a business rule in SQL Server Master Data Services (MDS).
You restrict the value of the Code attribute in the business rule to be a positive number only.
You publish a new entry in the MDS Add-in for Microsoft Excel.
In this scenario if the Code attribute contains a leading space, the attribute is invalid and the ValidationStatus column incorrectly displays Validation Succeeded. However when the data is refreshed, the ValidationStatus column correctly displays Validation Failed.
