Maybe it is a strange question, but is it possible to prevent the validation of a URL entered in a URL field? The link in the URL field points to a Sharepoint site in the same site collection, but only will be created later:

ListItem("URL") = "MySiteCollection/Customers/NewCustomer"

NewCustomer is created with a different process the link must be there before the site is created. I tried to disable field validation like:

Dim fldURL As SPField = ListItem.Fields("URL")
fldURL.ValidationFormula = ""
fldURL.ValidationMessage = ""

But I get an error message that

This field does not support validation.

So, can I put an invalid link to the URL field somehow?
