I have 3 objects (A, B, C). B have master-detail relationship to object A(master). Also object B have lookup on object C(parent). On layout of object A I have related list of records of object B. I need to show some fields from object C on this related list as if I have them on object B. What is the best way to show them? (I can't change relatioship between B and C to Master-Detail)

I think your best bet is to go for formula fields.

If you need to display some fields in A from C, then create a pair of formula fields in B object such as C__r.My_Field__c and add them in A's related list, that way if you ever need to change the fields you want to display, it's just editing a quick formula field.

  • thanks for you answer Javier, but I need display these fields(obect C fields) in related list area of object B(these values connected to object B) Jun 19, 2017 at 14:14

    @I.Kliavakin I expressed myself wrong, let me edit. Nonetheless, it isn't a problem: you add the formula fields in B and edit the related list in A to show B's formula fields that represent C's fields. Does it make sense to you? Jun 19, 2017 at 14:25
