Association between Accounts of different record types

Object: Account

RecordType   'Supplier Account'  , 'Lender Account'

I want to establish a m:m relationship between Accounts of different RecordTypes. e.g. 'Supreme Bolts Inc'  (Supplier Account)  can apply for financing to 'National Leasing Company'  (Lender Account), and many other Leasing Companies.  

I want to create a junction object to relate two Accounts of different RecordTypes. However, it seems like this is not possible.

1. Created a new Object,

2. Created a field  Supplier__C with M-D relationship with Account.

2. Created a filed Lender__c but cannot select Account for M-D rellationship. 

I think this use case is common, and wondering how others have tackled this or if someone could offer design ideas I would truly appreciate it.

Hi Rov,


I don't think this is possible to have same relationship with the same Object.Also,how exactly you wanted to relate both the recordtypes records as one record can be assigned to one RecordType only at a time.

Kindly mark it as best answer if it helps so that it can help others in the future.

Warm Regards,
