I have a custom object Address_vod__c. All the fields of this object are not coming for selection in History Tracking window. Is there any way I can make such a field (formula field) available there in Set History Tracking functionality of salesforce for Address_vod__c? I do not want to create a new history tracking custom object for this.

You can not track some kind of fields. These fields are:

  • Formula
  • Roll-up summary
  • Auto-number fields
  • Created By
  • Last Modified By

I think the ony way to make it work is to create a new extra history object and a trigger for the custom object to track on.
