I can see different values for picklist field. Let say i have a field on Custom object Country__c which stores values like FR, CN, IN, US but in record new page or detail page i can see France, China, India, United States. How they are logically linked ? any help would be great. Thanks.

  • Picklist values have label and API name. Label is displayed in front-end and api value is stored in back-end. Apr 4 '17 at 17:30

Picklist data might have been mapped to standardized picklist values.

There is a standard picklist given in salesforce for Country and state.

From Setup > Data Management > State and Country/Territory Picklists
