Need Lookup field to default to a certain Value

I have a Lookup field (Signing ISO) and when an account is created I need that field to default to

gotoBilling ISO, which is a value in the lookup.


Could someone tell me the code for this?

So far I have:


ISNEW( Signing_ISO__c )


Don't know what to do next.

Can you provide a little more information?



  • What object is the Lookup located on?  
  • Which Object to the Lookup to?  
  • What is the relationship between the 2 Objects? 


both Lookup fields are with the Accounts object - do you need something more?

What object are they Looking Up?


What is the relationship between the Account Object and the Object of the Lookup?  


Boy! Now I'm getting confused. I thought when I said they are both under the Account object that would tell their relationship and what object they are looking up. No?


One is a standard lookup field and one is a custom both under the Account object.


I must not be getting something here.

What I meant was "What type of record are you trying to connect to the Account via the ISO Lookup field?"


For example: on an Opportunity record the Account Name is a lookup(Account).



They are both Account records.
