I had CustomObjectA and Account standard object. 'CustomObjectB' is a junction object between CustomObjectA and Account object. Now, on Case object I had Account lookup filed. When I click on Account lookup field on Case object needs to search based on CustomObjectA fields also.

Please suggest the solutions.

Note: By default we can search using Account object fields, but I want search using both CustomObjectA and Account object fields.

    hmm looks like you need custom lookup feature. gist.github.com/jeffdonthemic/4f2feb55a16b95a37798 – Ratan Paul Feb 24 '16 at 9:50
  • You can't search on CustomObjectA with a standard functionality because each account may have many junction objects and many CustomObjectsA linked with it. You can search on parent object fields (because there can be no more than 1 parent so we know which record to search) but not on child objects because there can be more than 1 child. – Oles Malkov Feb 24 '16 at 9:58
  • @Ratan , Oles Malkov: Thank You! for share your suggestions. Custom lookup is really helpful, using this we can add our own filters in search. Still I am looking for any out of box functionality or any other easy solutions we can achieve. – Venkata Raja Feb 24 '16 at 11:07
