I created a VF Page for the Customer Portal. When a customer logs in, it pulls information in Salesforce based on their user id.


I want to allow the customer to edit their information and save it. 


My issue is it is saving changes to the  First_Legal_Name__c and Last_Legal_Name__C...However none of theother fields are saving. Am I going about this wrong? Do I need to have a View page and an Edit page like how Salesforce does it on their objects?


Thank you for any help you may have.

If you are not using the extension for anything then don't use it.

Just use the standard controller.

Change the save button's action to lower case save, {!save}.

You are not changing any values in your enrollment object once you have it in memory

Use the EA__c standard controller, then you won't have to create your own save method and what you have in your page should work.

The docs are a good place to start for example of how to use a standard controller.




Thanks, but it still does not save any fields except first_legal_name__c and last_legal_name__c.


I changed the page tag to the following:

<apex:page sidebar="false" standardController="EA__c" extensions="RasmussenEnrollmentClass">


Isn't it strange that it will update the first_legal_name__c and last_legal_name__c?


I thought maybe there were some read-only permissons on the other fields but I none of them are read-only.



Look at the FLS for all the fields, they could be set to read only for your profile.

If FLS is set to read only then yes you would expect this behavior.

I rechecked and nothing in the FLS is set to read-only.

If you are not using the extension for anything then don't use it.

Just use the standard controller.

Change the save button's action to lower case save, {!save}.
