saving the Account id while Creating a Contact from the backend.

Hi all,

 

I have a requirement of creating a contact and by default giving the mandatory field 'Account'

 

I am populating all the information like address , phone, email from a VF page, I have a field which actually indicates an Account for which the contact is being created.

 

if i have an id of account like a 15digit number and tried to store in the Contact.Account field it doesn't allow me.

 

When i try to store it in the contact.Account field it stores as empty :( :smileysad:, but it shows the id in the debug log ideally..

 

Any help is appreciated.

 

TIA

Store it in:

 

contact.AccountID

 

I find the API guides the best for confirming field names & other info when problems like this arise:
