I have a question related to email template.

I have two object : 1. Sales order (This contain shipment type filed with Means_of_Transport__r as API ) 2. Means of transport (This contain code filed as Code__c)

Now i am using merge formula as below :


But when i am using Send test and verify Merge field it's not taking any value for corresponding record.

Is this something i am using wrong logic ?

  • What is the type of email template and what is the relationship between fields? Also there is a typo here {!KNDY4__Sales_Order__r.KNDY4__Means_of_Transport__r.KNDY4__Code__c} – Tushar Sharma Oct 5 '18 at 10:21
  • It's a text email template and field are coming from manage package and i used {!KNDY4__Sales_Order__r.KNDY4__Means_of_Transport__r.KNDY4__Code__c} also but this is also not working. – Ravina Oct 5 '18 at 10:32

Currently, it is not supported in Text template to get parent field value. You can use VF email template there you can access Parent field.
