Hi,

What are you actually referring to:-

  • API name of a field ?
  • Or record id of an instance of an object? if looking at mergefield then {!objectname.id} or in sake you want it in query look at schema explorer in ecllipse you will get the exact field name 

Hope this helps...

Hi Ispita,

I want the id of standard field, not the ID of the instance record.

 

Suppose if you click on the any custom field of an object, in the URL there will be 15 digit ID for that custom field, similarly i want the ID of the standard field.

For that  I think you have go to the "Metadata API" route , as that is the construct to extract information regarding schema...

 Also you can try the describeobject() function route ....

Hope this helps...

Hi,

 

I even checked using describeSObject function in AJAX TOOLKIT but there also i couldn't find the field ID.

Is there any other workaround for generating a report by passing the standard field values as filters for report??

 

Thanks in Advance,

In that case you will have to take the "Metadata API" for this purpose..
