Can we create more than 50 fields in the Price Book Entry object?
|Knowledge Article Number||000230862|
|Description||There is a limit of 50 fields in the Price Book Entry Object.
This can be verified under Setup | Customize | Price Books | Price Book Entries | Limits.
Is this limit hard coded? can it be increased?
|Resolution||This Object is one of the rare Standard Objects that does not permit an increase. The limit of 50 custom fields cannot be changed.
As a solution you should consider creating Custom Fields on the Product level for any data that will be the same for all PriceBookEntries for a given Product. Likewise, you can create fields on Price Books to hold data that will be the same for all PriceBookEntries related to a given PriceBook.
