Is there a way to update an object without changing any of the values on its fields?
Here's the situation:
- dateA (date)
- lookup relationship with ObjectA
- formulaDateA formula(date) --> just displaying the date of dateA
ObjectB has a trigger in which, whenever any of its fields are updated, a trigger is fired.
However, for formulaDateA, since it is just a formula field, if dateA is change, the trigger in ObjectB will not fire.
Thus I have no choice but to create another trigger in ObjectA which will update a dummy field in ObjectB called fieldB and so, in effect, will fire off the trigger in ObjectB.
As much as possible, I don't want to create a new field called fieldB just so I can fire the trigger in ObjectB.
QUESTION: Is their a way that I could fire the trigger of ObjectB without updating any of its' fields?
