Using URL hack to pre populate a lookup field, field value being showed is "_HL_ENCODED_/_HL_ _HL__blank_HL_". expected value should be record Name


Im using a URL hack for a lookup field to pre-populate the value when creating new record, unfortunately value being showed in the field is "_HL_ENCODED_/_HL_   _HL__blank_HL_" expected output should be the Name of a record.

Hi Glen,
Pls check this below link and create custom button  in child object(B)
Here i am posting my code :
Parent object: Claims__c (it has contact relation)
Child objc : B (It has contact and Claims relations)
In the listview button of 'B' Object link as below:{!claims__c.Name}&CF00N2800000GmUDf={!claims__c.Contact__c}

CF00N2800000FAgob: is Lable id which you get from inspect element on Edit page of child record.

These are the following steps to put value in URL for any lookup field:
1) Don't use _lkid means lookup icon id, use simple lookup input field id.
2) Right click on lookup field (not on lookup icon) and inspect element.
3) Copy the id of field. Now you have field id.
4) Put field id = 'Name of Record' in URL, first try without space.
5) Now you can see that the value will be visible in lookup field.

Check in direct URL first and then modify according to you

For standard field

for custom field
NOT USE CF00NW0000001KFW6_lkid

Use --> /006/e?CF00NW0000001KFW6=Testing

Where Testing is the Account Name
