The difference between Relationship and Related lists on a table.


Relationship :-

  • Use this to manually create relationship between two tables in a dynamic way when the tables are not related by any field. In other words, the table does not have any reference field for the source table. 
  • To create a relationship navigate to System definition > Relationships
  • Here specify Query from (From where the data will be fetched) and Applies To (which forms the relationship applies to)
  • For adding further conditions on choosing the table, click on 'Advanced' and write the script.

Related List :-

  • These related lists are system created relationships between two tables for reference type fields
  • Such related lists would be available from Configure/Related lists and can be added to the form for the table of the reference field 
  • These related lists can be accessed from System UI/Related lists
