Wondering whether anyone has run into this before. I have a lookup field on one of my custom objects to the Contract object and want to add a lookup filter to that field. According to https://emea.salesforce.com/help/pdfs/en/salesforce_filtered_lookups_cheatsheet.pdf this should be a breeze, just click Edit for that field and go to the Lookup Filter Options. But when I click Edit, there is no section with that name on the edit screen. Is there any gotcha for this?


Aahh, ran into a limitation of lookup fields, according to https://help.salesforce.com/apex/HTViewHelpDoc?id=fields_lookup_filters_notes.htm&language=en_US Contracts are not a part of the Standard Object list that can have Lookup Filters applied.

Just wanted to get that out there if anyone else runs into the same problem :)
