Trying to Create a Link from one object to another

I am trying to create a link on a custom object that references another object.  For example:

 

We have a tab called Implementations and I want all the implementations to be associated with an active eval.  How do I do this?   I don't know where to begin with this.  Please help.

It sounds like you want to create a "lookup relationship" with Implementations and Evals. So assuming that one Eval can have many Implementations linked to it, you will add a custom field with a data type of "lookup relationship" on the Implementation custom object. This will ink the two objects and you should see a related list of Implementations on the Eval tab.

Hi John-

 

Thanks for your response.  Actually, I am looking for the link to go to the specific implementation that is attached to the eval.  I did what you are saying and I see the entire list, but I want to only see the implementation associated to the eval.  Make sense?

Bella1:

 

How have you defined the relationship between the two objects? In other words, how do you know that one eval is connected to an implementation? Is this a one-to-one relationship?

Hi John-

 

No I don't believe I have done that, what do I need to do in order for that to happen?   I want to be able to link an eval to an implementation and am lost.  Thanks for your help.

You should download and read the Force.com Fundamentals book. Especially chapter 3 and 6.
