Error: Value does not exist or does not match filter criteria

Why am I getting the Error: Value does not exist or does not match filter criteria
The default error message for invalid filter lookup data is "Value does not exist or does not match filter criteria". Users will be presented with this error message whenever the user attempts to save a record with any value if in a lookup field that does not meet the filter criteria.
- Filter Lookup validation triggers even if the field is not on the page layout. Therefore, if a user cannot see the field due to field level security or page layout security the Filter Validation will still trigger.
In order to resolve this you could:
- Correct the Filter validation with valid data or remove the data in the filter field altogether.
