Creating Master/child relationship

Hello,

 

I want to create a master child relationship but I would like to do this off of the

Custom Fields & Relationships rather than the Standard Fields is this possible.

 

The way that I have set up my tables and objects are:

 

Questions (as a table)

 

Answers ( as a table)

 

It would be great to link the two via pick list such as

 

Question Tab

Question Number

1

2

3

 

Answer Tab

Question Number

1

2

3

 

This really doesnt seem possible. It appears if i want something like this: It would be more like the Question Tab: Question Number Standard field as either auto num or text

 

Then select the Question Number Standard as the corresponding one i want to answer

 

I would rather link the two tables via  pick list - less user errors.

I'm not sure 2 objects is necessary given what you've described. Have you considered storing questions and answers on the same object? That would make it easy to set up a controlling/dependent picklist.

You can create the master-child relationship on the custom object as well.

Mater-detail relationship fields are always required on detail records.

To me its seems on-to one relationship the way you are modeling your data design not something that may require any picklist.
