Populate fields of a custom object in another custom object


How do I autopopulate the fields of object A in object B.  So if a user clicks on  'New License' (which is in related lists of object A), the user will be navigated to object B. Here, the Region field in object A should be autopopulated in B. 

FYI, 'Region' in object A is formula field and 'RegionT' in object B is picklist field.

Thank you.

You could achieve it by
1. Overriding native view with VFP
2. If you are using native layouts then there is no direct way of achiving it but you could achieve it by this approach


Hi Shashi,

first go to the object 2 and create a formula field according to your need select the field type and create
