Hidden Lookup field from Page Layout...using as merge field in VisulaForce page...



I have a lookup field to Lead created on a custom object.


I navigate to custom object from Lead's related list so that the field is auto populated with the Lead name.


I don't want that field to appear on page layout, so I removed, thinking of using the merge field for that filed to


include in a VF page.


But I could not achive that.


Is it not auto populated if it is hidden from page Layout.


No field level security on the field.


Any suggestions or clarification are appreciated.
