Salutation within the Account Name field capture is not captured on child look-up field


1. I have a account record with the name of "Mr. Sumit Kr"
2. Creating a child record from the account related list.
3. Now, when child record created, but lookup field exculeded Salutation. e.g.
    Account Name (lookup) looks like "Sumit Kr" instead of "Mr. Sumit Kr"

Hi Sumit,


I don't think we have the standard field Salutation on the Account Object as it is only available for the Contact Object.However,if you have created the custom field of type picklist called as salutation on the Account record then it is the expected behavior that it will just copy the AccountName on the Lookup.

If it comes to the Contact then the Name field is the combination of the Firstname and Lastname so it will not copy the salutation when you create the child record.

Kindly mark it as best answer if it helps so that it can help others in the future.

Warm Regards,

Hi Shirisha,

Thanks for the replying.

It's a standard field on Account objcet. If you goto Account Objcet field page and check "Account Name" then you will be see Salutation under this field.
