post question

Hi Everyone,

My Scenario is create two fields
product category” as the first lookup(Product2) and then the “Product Name/Code” as the second lookup(Product2) into Child Object (Request__c).

Note:  here main problem is reffering same Parent Object(Product2) in Child Object

Here my client expecting first lookup user going to select perticuler Category 

Product Category 

Samsung :(user Clicks First lookup values is Samsung in second lookup need to display some dependeny mentioned below )

Product  Name/code(Lookup)

IPHONE:(user Clicks First lookup values is IPHONE in second lookup need to display some dependeny mentioned below )

Product name/code(Lookup)

Sony:(user Clicks First lookup values is Sony in second lookup need to display some dependeny mentioned below )

Product Name/code(Lookup)

I'm implemented same functionlity using picklist dependency its working fine but my client expecting above scenario. 

Can you please guide me how to achive this scenrion in Salesforce .

How to avoid case sensitive  issue while comaparing between two object field values with the same field value 
Hello Salesforce Experts,

 I am new to developer forum and need your guidance. There is a Single select Picklist field (Primary) and Multi-Select Picklist field (Secondary) and these fields are added to Opportunity Object. The data validation to happen before insert, before update of the opportunity record. 
Requirement : User should not be allowed to select the value in Secondary (mult-select picklist) same as Primary.

Validation rule/ process builder doesn't work for this due to limitations on multi-select picklist and validation needs to be done before insert / update.
I started writing Trigger for this. However, below code snippet is not working. Appreciate any help.

if(Trigger.IsInsert || Trigger.IsUpdate)
            If (O.Secondary__c,CONTAINS(O.Primary__c)) {
                O.addError('Secondary cannot have same value as Primary ');
