SFDC Tips #2

Standard objects can’t be on the detail side of a custom object in a master-detail relationship. There are OOTB Master Detail relationship between Standard object, e.g. Opportunity and Opportunity Product (Opportunity Line Item), but, a new Master-Detail relationship cannot be created between standard objects or between standard object and custom object given tha Standard object is required to be at detail side.

Please find the below screenshot where there is no option to create a Master-Detail Relationship on standard object.
