Written by: Gam Tran

Besides the main functions of NetSuite, NetSuite custom records are the building blocks to customizing your NetSuite environment to meet the specific needs of your business.

And today, I will guide you how to add a sublist on a custom record as below:


First, you create a saved search that obtains the results that you want to show on your custom records.

2. Click the Sublists subtab.

  • In the Search column, select the saved search.

  • In the Label column, enter a label for the subtab where you want the search results to display.

  • (When the Multi-Language feature is enabled) In the Translation column, enter one or more translations of the label. You can enter up to 50 characters in the Translation column.

  • In the Tab column, select the custom subtab where you want this sublist to display.
