record name

Hi All,


Can you pls tell me why is that record name is there while creating custom object. Why it's mandatory?







1) By default, Once we create any object we will get a standard field called "name".

   In general we are representing that standard field as our recordname. It may be either Text or AutoNumber.

   Its a prebuild functionality by the salesforce.

2) The Record Name appears in page layouts, key lists, related lists, lookups, and search results.

    If the object has any relation (either Master- detailed or Lookup) with another object, when we try to get the record values

    into child object, generally with RecordName only we will get that data.

    Its just an identity to represent the entire record (including all fields).
