While creating new account record I want to add a demo name should be automatically assigned on account name.

I would like to pre-populate the account name for this record type with something so the user doesn’t have to be bothered with entering something there because it’s a required field.

Hi Sumit,

You can achieve this through URL hacking. You need to overwrite the New button with a VF page. The sole purpose of the VF page is to provide a redirection. The associated controller of the VF page will construct the URL, populate the account name field using url parametes and then open the standard account page.

You can find more information about URL hacking here : http://writeforce.blogspot.in/2013/01/prepopulating-fields-using-url-hacking.html

Let me know if you have  any questions. Thanks.

Hi Sumit,

You can create a Java Script Custom button with type List button to pre-populate the Account Name for particular record type.

I hope it helps you.

Hi Sumit,

You can create a custom button and use that button on Accounts page layout and hide the standard New button from page Layout.

Thanks,

Hi Sumit,

You can override Standard New button with following steps:

1. Setup -> Account -> Button and Links -> New (Edit) -> Here you can override this with your visualforce page.

I hope it helps you. Please mark this as best answer if it helps you, so that it would be helpful to others.

Thanks,
