Hiding the standard 'Name' field from related list

Hi,

I wanted to hide the standard 'Name' column from the related list of parent object. But after doing so I cannot navigate to the child detail page from the related list as the 'Name' field contains the link for navigation and when it's hidden, navigation is also gone.
Can we put the link on another column or any other workaround? Kindly help

Hi Shankar,

You can not remove the name field from related list...that should be the first field and you can not remove also...

If you want to achieve whatever you said above, then you can crate a inline VF page..which will show all childs and you can customize everything there as per your need.

Thanks,
