A cross object formula references fields from parent objects.

  • True ✅
  • False

Correct Answers

True ✅


A Cross-object formula is a formula that spans two related objects and references merge fields on those objects. A cross-object formula can reference merge fields from a master (“parent”) object if an object is on the detail side of a master-detail relationship. A cross-object formula also works with lookup relationships.
You can reference fields from objects that are up to 10 relationships away. A cross-object formula is available anywhere formulas are used except when creating default values.
You can’t include an object as the lookup field in a formula. To reference an object, reference the object’s ID field or another field on the object. For example, Account.Owner is invalid because it references the object directly. Account.Owner.FirstName or Account.OwnerId are valid references for your formula.
