Basically, on the Account page, I've a related list called 'Rate', which has a field called 'Rate Group'
You can click on Rate Group to go to the Rate Group page, but I was wondering if I could make another field in the Rate Group (the Unique/External ID) go to the same page.
Of course, another look up is possible, but I'm not sure how to link the lookup from the rate's field to the rate group's unique/external id field.
We're trying only to show the ID rather than than the name.
edit: Ended up using a formula field:
HYPERLINK("/" & Id, TEXT(ExtGroupID__c), "_self")
