Hi all,

My first post here (now that I've finally been approved), and my first time clearing up ILR errors without "the boss".

Can anyone advise please as to how I clear LearnFAMType_01 errors please?  I'm still very much learning the ropes in this role, and the validation rules spreadsheet doesn't appear to offer that much in the way of actual advice.

Many thanks, in advance.
