IE on a new opportunity for contact, if i have a lookup on the contact page, and that same lookup onthe opp page, how would i pull that through with a button? using the standard ID is not working.
using the ID iwth 'idname_lkid' is also not working . . .
FIND will return the first space in a text string but how would i return the last space in a text string?
my real question is if I have a string of a few words with spaces in between. My last word will always be same ie product, and i want the last word returned b4 the word 'product'
so in a string that says "gnome imperial product' i want only the word imperail returned.
is this possible?
i'm trying to enable alphabetizing views easier . . .
I hope this is the correct forum.
I relatively new to Apex and needing some help achieving this particular task.
I have two custom objects. Call these ObjA and ObjB. ObjB is related to ObjA, and has a look-up field to reference the related ObjA. It has another picklist, say "country". ObjA also has the "country" picklist.
Now when the user chooses to create the related ObjB from the ObjA details page, salesforce automatically populates the reference to ObjA in the ObjB data entry form. Is it possible for me auto-select the "country" picklist in ObjB data entry form based on the related value in ObjA?
Secondly, there's a third custom object, ObjC. I'd like the users to be taken to the data entry form to create new ObjC, if they select "US" in the picklist in ObjB and save ObjB. It'll have to be in the trigger condition, but I unsure as to how to initiate "create new object" screen.
Hope this is not as confusing as it seems to me :) I look forward to your responses and if I do manage to get it solved, I'll post the solution for future ref.
Our client's use case: When there is a meeting involving multiple contacts they want to be able to create a single task that will be related to all of the participating contacts.
If this is not possible by means of configuration or out of the box, what are the other avalable options? We have an EE edition, so no Apex Code. I can only think of fully custom UI pages using S-Controls that would create duplicate activity records and assign to multiple Contacts. Any alternative suggestions?
Any advice on customizing conversion pages would be helpful seeing as how i have not found any way to do this so far...
