we have a Lookup field (GlobalSource_c) which when a value of "ABS" is selected then Picklist (Source_c) should populate "Sourced by ABS" without which it will not allow to save the record.Any Idea

Hi Asw,

Please try below formula for validation rule: -

If you wanted for all records 
    GlobalSource_r.Name ="ABS",
    TEXT(Source_c) <> "Sourced by ABS"
If you wanted only when creating the record
    GlobalSource_r.Name ="ABS",
    TEXT(Source_c) <> "Sourced by ABS"

Note: - Please use the correct API name and use insert field for selecting the fields.

Trying to create a formula field and this issue keeps coming up. I'd understand what to do if it was saying a boolean or number was expected. No clue when it seems to say nothing is expected.
 $CustomMetadata.Opportunity_Stage_Limit__mdt.Qualified_Limit.Stage_Name__c, TODAY()+ $CustomMetadata.Opportunity_Stage_Limit__mdt.Qualified_Limit.Day_Limit__c,
 $CustomMetadata.Opportunity_Stage_Limit__mdt.RF1_Limit.Stage_Name__c, TODAY()+  $CustomMetadata.Opportunity_Stage_Limit__mdt.RF1_Limit.Day_Limit__c,

I haven't used custom metadata types, but I've seen it with the actual string values used and that's what I would try.

So instead of this:

Trying to create a report that shows each account and the last activity created by a sales rep (custom field). When I run the report, I am seeing the same company show every activity in the report. See image below for an example. I need to the report to only show, in tabular format, every account with the date field. User-added image

You should be creating an Account report, not an Activity report then.

I am looking to relate my email communications to a client (from Gmail) to an existing case in Salesforce.

I added the thread ID to the email subject as well as the email body and I have copied the Routing Address that has been set up.

Instead of tying the email to the existing case, it keeps creating new cases. Is there a setting I'm missing? I am using the formula that we have used in another client org and it is working fine there. I just can't figure out why it isn't recognizing the thread id and tying the email to the case.

Please help! :)

@Kari, ya even by SFDC's own admission that formula won't work everytime based on the Case ID itself, you might have run into one of the times that it doesn work... Looks like someone dropped an updated version on this idea recently:

I need to grant access to a user to clone an application.
There is the only way I can see is adding the clone button on the page layout. Was wondering if I can create a permission set?

The best way to achieve this is to create a new page layout (with the clone button) and assign it to a new profile, which the person will have access to. There is no permission set setting that can control this.

Try this = 
    IF(NOT(ISBLANK(Type_Min__c)), 1, 0) +
    IF(NOT(ISBLANK(Type_Max__c)), 1, 0)
) != 1

Hi - I've tried and tried - and checked past posts but I'm still no further forward!

I have some currency formula fields that I need to be able to overide...

Unit_Price__C = a formula field
Unit_Price_2__C = a currency field

I need the field I'm working on to display Unit_Price_2__C, but if it's blank, to display Unit_Price__C instead.

Please can anyone guide my before I go mad!

Rule currently has-

$Profile.Name <> 'System Administrator', 
$User.Id <> "0058000000DY9QG", 
TEXT(PRIORVALUE(StageName)) = 'Closed booked' 

Thank you, Vineeth V

Hi all, 
This ia very long thread, and I was wondering if anyone can help with my dilemma!
