    Hi Anjali,

    Use dependent picklists to help your users enter accurate and consistent data. A dependent picklist is a custom or multi-select picklist for which the valid values depend on the value of another field, called the controlling field. Controlling fields can be any picklist (with at least one and fewer than 300 values) or checkbox field on the same record.

    For example, you can define a Reason custom picklist on opportunities and make its valid values depend on the value of the Stage picklist as follows:

    • If Stage is Closed Won, the valid values for Reason are Superior features or Lower price.
    • If Stage is Closed Lost, the valid values for Reason are Inferior features, Higher price, or Company viability.

    Adding some points:

    Dependent picklist is a type for picklist having: Controlling Field : The value independency controls the value of the dependent field. Dependency field : The vale on Dependency field depends on value of the Controlling field. Now we are going to create Controlling field and Dependent field.

    Thanks
