Trouble finding field ID's

I am trying to create a custom link on the Account Object to create a new Child Account and prepopulate some of the fields in the Child object from data in the Parent account.


I cannot locate many of the field ID's in the View Source.

I can find the custom fields but it appears that the ID's for the standard fields are giving me problems.


Fields like

  • Parent
  • Billing Address


Is there a better way to find those field ID's than View Source? Or can someone tell me the secret sauce in View Source?
