I have a Master Zipcode object which has the Zipcode information. Master zipcode object has a lookup in the Account object. My requirement is I need to copy the Account object Zipcode to Master Object Zipcode lookup so that using formula field I can pull some information from the Master Zipcode object. Can any one suggest me how I can do this without Trigger.


Without a trigger, you won't be able to since you'll need the corresponding record id, which would require a lookup soql statement [SELECT Id FROM MasterZipCode__c WHERE Name = :myAccount.BillingPostalCode]

  • Thanks Nathan for the reply. I have a trigger to do this but my client are not in favor of any code. So I am looking for option other then any custom code. – Tamil Mar 6 '15 at 21:07
  • The only non-code option (to my knowledge) would be to force them to populate the lookup field on insert/edit... – Nathan Williams Mar 6 '15 at 21:10
