I have a custom object "Service Timecard". One of the fields on the object is "Service Technician" which is a User Lookup field. I want to be able to prepopulate that field using URL hacking. I managed to override the "New Button" and this is what I have so far and it's not populating the User in the lookup field: /a14/e?CF00N30000007Ceht&CF00N30000007Cehz{!$User.FirstName}{!$User.LastName}&CF00N30000007Cehz_lkid={!$User.Id} Any ideas? Thanks!

You need forgot an '=' and also you only need to use {!user.Name}



Hope that helps

  • D'oh! For the life of me I couldn't see that. You know what, that fixed it. Thanks so much! :-)
