Email Template Mergre Issue

 I have 2 related list in opportunity say R1 and R2.


In email template for R2 i have to merge fileds from R1...


Any help on this??


Hi Amit,


I understand that both r1 and r2 have a relationship(lookup)  with Contact and therefore exist on Contact page as related list.


In order to have R1's field on email template created on R2 - you will have to have a relationship between R1 and R2


For example:

On a contact - I have Case and Purchase (custom object) as two related lists


I would be able to create an email template with Contact fields on Case or Purchase and these fields will be populated when I select this template to send a mail from say case or Purchase Object


Hope this helps!


Thank you  Sonam for your respone.


In my case there is no relation between R1 and R2. I have Opportunity having two related list partner and extension.

and on extension object email template i have to merge field which is name from Partner.


Any suggestion can you please give to achieve this?


Hi Amit,
