I have a user SharePoint list where a field was originally created as required, but need to make it not required. The field is a choice datatype with choices of yes/no. While the list will reflect that it is not required the form shows that it is required. Trying to save produces an error and refuses to save.
The error is as follows:
The form cannot be submitted because it contains validation errors. Errors are marked with either a red asterisk (required fields) or a red, dashed border (invalid values). Field or group: my:Associated_x0020_Cost_x002f_Savi Error: Cannot be blank
Using the datasheet view of the list produces a warning that the fields could not be updated; If I want to wait (yes/no). Selecting no will display that the information was saved correctly. I need the form to be able to save with this field being blank.
I have already tried the following:
1. Simply unchecking the required field checkbox in list.
2. Changing dropdown field to Check box or options.
3. Dropping field from list and adding back in. (This also confirmed that form works without this field).
4. Changing required through InfoPath 2010 or SharePoint Designer 2010.
