I have Lookup field value of object A and used trigger to display the same field value in object B.If I use a field of type text,then I can see ID.if I use a field of type Lookup,then I can see the same name it hold in object A. Is it possible to get Name in the lookup field of object A into a field of type text as Name instead of Id in object B? how to achieve this?


Use a formula field to show the name of the lookup field. Set the type of formula field to text
