Person-Accounts: Formula Field: "PersonHasOptedOutOfFax" Does Not Exist

I have the following formula field on the Account object. (We have Person-Accounts enabled)


IF( PersonHasOptedOutOfFax, Fax & " " &   IMAGE($Setup.LTSS__c.Opt_Out_Image__c, "Do Not Contact",  15,15), Fax)


And salesforce gives me: Error: Field PersonHasOptedOutOfFax does not exist.


Problem is that when I look at the Account object in the IDE, it certainly does have a PersonHasOptedOutOfFax field (and it is filterable meaning that it is queryable.


What gives?


I'd guess you need to append "__c" to the field name - custom fields usually have to be referred to with that suffix.


This is not possible in standard functionality. Vote for this Idea to get it fixed:
