When a new object is created in Intacct, it automatically creates a record name field with the same label name as the object name. This field can be indexed and can be used in filter expressions and as a column in views or a merge field. You also can use this field to pick a record when the object is in the selector list mode. However, there is one caveat with this field. When you add a new record to the object, it uses the label name as its default value. As you can see from the screenshot (Figure 1) below, all the values in the My Object column are the same. This can be a problem when you view this object from a selector list mode, because it makes it hard to differentiate what you have picked from the selector. Using the list shown in Figure 2 as an example it is impossible to know which record is selected.
