Hi Abhishek,

In your VF Controller constructor add below lines
API name of ClientID = UserInfo.getUserId();
API name of BussinessUnit = 'PHS';

Hi Magesh:
Thanks for your reply.But how it will populate that paticular page,if i update it in constructor.

Can you provide me the code of that VF controller?
Hello Abhishek,

When you will do something like this below inside your constructor:

objectName__c.ClientIDfieldName__c = UserInfo.getUserId();
objectName__c.BussinessUnitfieldName__c = 'PHS';

When page is loaded, constructor is the first thing that gets invoke so it will automatically take values for these two fields from the constructor and would pe populated in the page.

Some part i have erased
Am sorry but I can't see anywhere you are using client ID or bussiness unit field in the code that you have shared.
