There are already 2 pick list values "Yes" and "No" for a field "F1" in the Object "xyz". There are two record types A and B. Record type A alone have access to these 2 fields. Now i created a picklist value "N/A" for the field F1 and gave access in Record type A alone. But i am able to see all the picklist values including "N/A" in the field for the record type B also. There are other record types also in addition to A and B. they have access to "Yes" and "No" picklist values but not to "N/A". but there it is working fine. I'm able to see only "Yes" and "No" but not the "N/A" for the field F1. Only in record type B even if there is no access for any of the picklist values all the values are visible. please let me know what might be the cause for it.

  • Is it dependent picklist? – Raul Feb 22 '17 at 11:00

  • Bro did you check B record type as it may have access for the picklist value N/A – prasanthcheenu Feb 22 '17 at 11:34

    Bro Definitely, every picklist fields will be available to edit for any Record Type. Atleast one value from the picklist field should be given access for any record Type. Only way to take out the access of picklist field is either by restricting the field access to certain profile at the time of creation or by removing the picklist field from page layout and that page layout should be assigned to the record type for which you wish there should be no access. – prasanthcheenu Feb 22 '17 at 12:09

    If the picklist field is visible then atleast one value will be visible. Simple way to check is we have go to the record type and look for the picklist field name and click edit and there you could see the picklist values that are accessible. – prasanthcheenu Feb 22 '17 at 12:12
