URL hack for Accounts

I am populating few fields on account when i click new custom button. I am using url hack to populate th fields.  Button is copying the value for all fields except text area.

I want to copy description field value to another record.

I can see value in the url is copid but it is not populated on the field. How can i copy text area field using url hack?

Have you tried removing the "CF" part in the field ID? Also Account object has standard Description field, in case you are mixing them up.

Try this: 


If this won't work, I would suspect the field type being text area.

Yes you can do. Please check below screen shot. I tested same on Account and Opportunity

Please let us know if this will help you

@Tolga: Description field is custom text area on accounts.

@Amit : , i want field to be populated with its value. example : if description is "aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa" and when i click on this button it should copy this value to new record. so this field can have different value for different accounts. I canot hard code the value like "demo"
