Hi ,

 

 

I have a requirement where i need to customize the Clone functionality. When a record is cloned a few fields need to be left blank while cloning so for that i needed the field ids. 

 

I created a custom button in which i did URL hacking in this way:

 

https://na5.salesforce.com/{!Contact.Id}/e?00N90000001uQcw=&name_lastcon2=&clone=1&retURL=%2F{!Contact.Id}

 

Thanks..

is that mean field id should use as parameter name on the url instead of field name?

Yes it only recognizes the field Id and not the field API name.
