Cross validation (also known as cross segment validation) controls the combinations of values you can create when you enter values for key flexfields. A cross validation rule defines whether a value of a particular segment can be combined with specific values of other segments.

Cross validation is different from segment validation, which controls the values you can enter for a particular segment.

When a user finishes entering segment values in a flexfield popup window, the flexfield checks whether the values make up a valid combination before updating the database. If the user entered an invalid combination, a diagnostic error message appears, and the cursor returns to the first segment assumed to contain an invalid value.

The Cross-Validate Segments check box  in the Key  Flexfield segment window((N) Setup>flexfields>Key> Segments) controls the application of cross validation rules.
 the cross validation rules will only be applicable when this option is checked.
