I am looking for an option to copy fields from Main Object to Child Object, when lookup is selected: enter image description here

Also when i edit field 1,2,3,4 from Child Object i want to copy that value in Main Object field 1,2,3,4.

What suggestion do you have for this problem?

You have some ways to solve it.

If the fields can be editable only in one object, you can use a Formula field.

If you want that these fields will be editable in both objects I suggest you to use a workflow rule, a flow or a Process Builder. Also, if you want to code, you can use a trigger for this.

  • I did it with process builder, and i need i first to save record and then after that it update me value in that field( problem 1), can we avoid that? And problem 2 is that i can't edit field... Apr 6, 2017 at 19:13
  • If you need to do it before to save, you should use a before update trigger.
