There is Contact object as parent object and I have created a custom object called Vaccination_Information__c which is a child of Contact object.

I want to include the contact name field from Contact object in Vaccination_Information__c object lightning record form that I have created using LWC. How should I import it in the JS file?

Below is the code line that I have written but shows error:

import CONTACTNAME_FIELD from '@salesforce/schema/Vaccination_Information__c.Contact__c';

where Contact__c is the api name for the master detail relationship. and the error is:

Invalid reference Vaccination_Information__c.Contact__c of type sobjectClass in file vaccineReg.js

lightning-record-edit-form does not allow you to display the parent field directly. In order to use them on child object lightning record form, You need to do something like this:-

  • Use nested record edit form outer one for child and inner one for parent

  • define a onload handler of the child and fetch the parent record id

  • pass the fetched parent record id to parent record edit form to load parent record

  • on click of submit, save both the form programmatically

     <lightning-record-edit-form object-api-name={objectApiName} record-id={recordId} onload={handleLoad}>
         <lightning-input-field field-name="Name"></lightning-input-field>
         <lightning-input-field field-name="AccountId"></lightning-input-field>
         <!--Account field starts from here-->
         <lightning-record-edit-form object-api-name="Account" record-id={accId}>
             <lightning-input-field field-name="Type"></lightning-input-field>
         <!--submit button to save both account and contact-->
         <div class="slds-var-m-top_medium">
             <lightning-button variant="brand" label="Save" onclick={handleSubmit}>

JS File:-

    // Flexipage provides recordId and objectApiName
    @api recordId;
    @api objectApiName;

    handleLoad(event) {
        var record = event.detail.records;
        var fields = record[this.recordId].fields;
        this.accId = fields.AccountId.value;

    handleSubmit() {
        this.template.querySelectorAll('lightning-record-edit-form').forEach(element => {

When i added the component on child record page, it comes with both parent and child record fields enter image description here
