how to add a text content +value in trigger

Hi,

I have a trigger which copies all the values of fields from one object to another,

I want to add some text value to specific field followed by the value

Trigger Leadprocess on Lead_Object__c(after insert,after update)
{
     List<Lead> sub=new List<Lead>();
     for(Lead_Object__c v : Trigger.new)
     {
         
                   Lead  s = new Lead();
                  // s.RecordType.name =v.Record_Type__c;
                   s.FirstName=v.First_Name__c; 
                   s.LastName =v.Last_Name__c;
                   s.Account_Type__c = v.Account_Type__c;
                   s.Units_In_Inventory__c = v.Units_In_Inventory__c;
                   s.Company = v.company__c;
                   s.PostalCode = v.Billing_Zip__c; 
                   s.AnnualRevenue =v.Annual__c;
                   s.Salutation  = v.Salutation__c;
                   s.LeadSource =v.Record_Type__c;
                   s.Status =v.Leadstatus__c;
                   s.Additional_Information__c =v.ZID__c;  
                   sub.add(s);
           
           
            insert sub;
     }
}


Something like this,


s.Additional_Information__c ="The entered value is "+ v.ZID__c;

Please help me to know how to do this

Thanks in Advance

HI Bharath,

What you've done there is correct, except you have put in double quotes, you need to use single quotes for text expressions in SFDC

if the value is not of type string, cast it to a string using string.valueof(YOURFIELDHERE);

Hope this helps

You also need to keep in mind the field length for the fields you are setting in the Lead object
