field Update

I have 2 custom objects. (Proj and Event). While creating a new Proj, I need to populate the proj name(mandatory field) with the Event name(lookup field) when the event name is filled.


I used workflow rule and field update to get this done but it isnt working.


This is what I used


Field to update : Project Name

Formula Value : Event_Name__c


Even i tried this, but in vain


Field to update : Project Name

Formula Value : Event_Name__r.Name


 Any ideas ?




I think you should try the following:-

Field to update : Project Name

Formula Value : Objectname__r.FieldName

in your case if

Event is a custom object:-
Formula Value : event__c__r.Event_Name__c
Formula Value : event.Event_Name__c

Did this answer your question? If not, let me know what didn't work, or if so, please mark it solved

Thanls for the reply. It isnt working. I tried with Event__r.Name in the Field Update. Or is it something i need to do different in the workflow rule ! This is what I used in the workflow rule. Rule Criteria: Project Name equals null. Evaluation Criteria: Only when a record is created So when the project name is null, it gets the value from the Event name.
