We are having an issue in creating a default value. The object "The Trip" is the master and the object "Itinerary" is the detail.

We want to make the field "Start Date" from the object "Itinerary" as having the default value from the field "Start Date" of the object "The Trip". We are attempting to use the formula editor, but we are not able to input the correct formula to solve our task.

What do we put in the formula editor to make the start_date of Trip object as the default value for the start_date of the Itinerary object?

Thank you for your help.

    Welcome to SFSE! Please take the tour and read How to Ask. Questions like this tend to be better received if you include the work (code, markup, formula, etc...) that you've tried to develop so far. It helps show that you've made a good-faith attempt to resolve the issue on your own, and can help guide people in writing their answers (or, in some cases, identify that there is a better approach). Also, if you're running into an error, you should always include the full text of the error (without paraphrasing) as the information in the error is often vital for solving the problem. – Derek F Aug 8 at 18:42
