I have created a custom object and I want to use a picklist in a formula field. All I really want to do is display this field on my custom object. Is there a way to do that without using a Formula field since I cannot use a picklist in the way I want. I do not want to override the pages with visualforce I know this is one way to just put an output field of the picklist on the page.


This is all I am trying to do: Account__r.Operational_Status__c.


Where Operational_Status__c is a custom picklist.  I just want the value that is selected in this picklist to appear on a different object's detail view.


Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

ok, here goes another attempt at getting some help with this.



1) Custom object is created.

2) Custom tab for custom object is created.

    a) This tab shows the default view, just showing a list of object/record names.

3) I click Edit next to "View: All [Go!]" to customize the view.


HOWEVER, in order to get to my customized view the user must click [Go!] after opening the tab. How do I get my custom view to display by default?
