hey, just use a formula field which combines the both names.


1. create a formula field naming it as Name.

 

2. and name = firstname + lastname

Name is a standard field with "Text" (or) "Auto Number" Data type, i.e. input Field in first case, AUTONUMBERED field in second case.  I am wondering how could you do FORMULA with standard Name field. please can you share it

Hi Shah, 

 

FYI. the formula field referred here is a custom one.
