is it possible to associate a contact with a company name?

Hi there,

 

I have 2 questions:

1. When I am editing a contact, I would like to indicate the name of the company the contact is from but I can't find a "company" field in the edit panel

 

2. Is there a company field available in the API contact object?

I can't find a field to relate with a company name here: http://www.salesforce.com/us/developer/docs/api/Content/sforce_api_objects_contact.htm

 

Many thanks for your help

Hi,

 

I believe, that you are trying to edit a contact which is already associated to another account.

 

May be the Account Name field in the contact detail page might be having Lookup Filter Criteria.

 

Possible solution,


Check if the Account Name field in contact Object carries any Lookup Filter and proceed accordingly.

 

My suggesstion would be, goto the Account Detail page and click on the "Contacts" related list on the top and create a new contact.

 

Please mark this post as solved, if it helps you.
