Workflows that trigger Account and Contact object changes

Here's my workflow rule: once the Opportunity stage is moved to "Closed Won" the associated Account type field is updated to "Customer". Is it possible to get the Contact owner and one other Contact field that are associated to that Account to also update alongside the initial Opportunity workflow?

Dear Chris,

Not possible via workflow field update. Cross object field updates work only in case of master-detail relationship. Then too, when both the objects, master as well as detail, are standard objects, it's possible only for few of them. Apart from that, you can only update field in master object when workflow is on detail object.

Your workflow is on Oppty, and you want to update Contact, which means, from oppty, go to Account and then from there, go to associated contact and update. Which is possible only through Trigger.

Through Oppty, you can update account though.
