Is there any limit on a standard object or custom object to be a master in M-D

 

  

Is there any limit on a standard object or custom object to be a master in a Master- Detail Relationship.

 

I am making Account to be a master of a custom object. Can i make Account as master to as many custom objects or a custom object as master to as many custom objects.

The maximum number of Master-Detail relationships that can be created on a custom object is 2.

Hi ! Everyone.

 

I've found my question relevant to your post. So, Posting my query here.

 

I've tried to create a custom object named "course" to be a Master in more than 2 Master Detail Relationships(I might have converted lookup to master in few cases), but I was told that the maximum limit is only 2. Please clarify the point.

 

Thanks..

You can do that and make your custom object 'Course' to be a master of other objects (more than 2 times).......

but You cannot make more than 2 Master- Detail relationships in your 'Course' Object.

There you can that a object can be master to other objects more than 2 times.....either a standard object or custom object.
