Cannot Lookup Owner Name???

I want to create a formula field to show the Case Owner Full Name on a child object.

There's no way to do this??

The only thing available is "OwnerId"...

I can do "CreatedBy.LastName" and get the name of the Creator... why can't I do the same thing to get the Owner's last name?

Am I missing something?  Is there a way to do this?



You can't do that on some objects, like Lead and Case, because Owner is polymorphic -- it can be a Queue or a User, and those objects have different sets of fields.


You could do this with an Apex trigger though.
