I have content type Say "A" and for that i want to create view, in this view i want to add a field which is from different content type say "B", reason is here in the B content type i have fee category and assigning the rent value for each category, and this node of content type is referring in a content type A with entity reference, something like this in screen shot. as of now i created view for content type A,and added the field of content type B, but the values add in the content B are not displaying in the view of content A

To get the values of "cage rent per day" from B to A's view, you must add a relation in content A view with the "Fee category" field.

Then normally you should select in the "cage rent per day" field settings in view A, the relation you've just added.

However, the idea is to have some reference to content B in view A to access B's fields values. And this is possible with relations .

    Normally you need to choose a reference field to type B in type A. This way you'll get all the values of B in A. And then when you add/edit a field in A, you can select the relation to type B. – anou Oct 12 '15 at 8:31

Relationship is what you're looking for. I found this on Google - Drupal Views relationships and entity reference

  • its for entity reference field, and they are saying content A,B,C iam confused now, i want to get the values of filed from content B in content A , with their corresponding entity reference field. just like in screen shot.but – kashish Oct 10 '15 at 7:03
  • As far as I understand content A has an entity ref. field that refer to a node of type B and you want to show the value of a field in the referenced node (of type B) in a view that shows all nodes of type A. If that's correct, then you should add a relationship to the content refered by the entity ref. and then you should be able to select the rent field from the ref. node (of type B..) – rreiss Oct 10 '15 at 7:22
  • My requirement is like this: please take look in content A , there is field called cage rent per day, its a field from content B, and in the left column You could see the Fee category which is entity reference from content B, here in content A whatever i am updating the fee category in content B i can able to fetch here in content A view, but problem is i am not able get the values of cage rent per day which i am updating in content B while updating with the fee category, Note: only the fee category is entity reference field, not cage rent per day [its a text field from content B ]. – kashish Oct 10 '15 at 7:29
