 "like currecy field"

please help me.............






Hi Vasu,


I want to remind you one thing here that we can not enter any Text value in Number field.

You can create it as Text field and put Default Value as "Kg."

It always show Kg. in text field while creating new records.

i mean that , the field should like as currency field.


sorry Vasu it is not possible with any number field OR any currency field because both don't allow any text value.

You have to create Text field or formula field for this.

You can do this via a Visualforce solution - it's a little tricky but doable.


Don't know if you'd really want to take that on vs. renaming the field label to "xxxx (kg)" instead.  =)
