Is it possible to create dependent picklist dependenden on the lookup value entered while creating or editing a record in the standard or custom object?

Hi Team,

I have a requirement wherein I would like to have a lookup field whose value controls the values of dependent picklist shown to the user while creeating or editing a record. I have not decided whether to use a standard or custom object.

Is this requirement feasible?

If not, could anyone suggest what could be closest that can be achieved to this requirement and how?

Many Thanks in advance for all your help and support!

Hi John,

Greetings to you!

Controlling field can only be Picklist (and not multi-picklist) and checkbox.
Picklist fields can only be 'controlled' by other picklist fields. You can use a Validation Rule to double-check that appropriate choice were made, based on the name of the Lookup field.

Please refer to the below links which might help you further.

I hope it helps you.

Kindly let me know if it helps you and close your query by marking it as solved so that it can help others in the future. It will help to keep this community clean.

Thanks and Regards,
Khan Anas
