Questions about Database!


I'm new at development and and i have some questions to do.


I have an object called Person:


Can i upload a XML with information about a Person  and parse it for a new data?

Ex: XML -> Parse -> Popule a New Person Object -> Save it 


Another question is:

Can i have an Object List as "Field" inside my Custom Object?

As i see when i was doing the tutorial, i can do a Picklist field. But its not what i want because i need to define the values, and i want to populate it with some datas from XML. An String List for example.


Tks for all help!

And sorry about my english! Im studying a lot to write and speak better =)







With respect to your query about loading data from an XML one can do it by writing a program in Dot net using the partner or enterprise wsdl, but from within the salesforce org one cannot load data from XML.Also you can upload data from a csv. using the data upload wizard of salesforce or using APEX  data loader.


Did this answer your question? If not, let me know what didn't work, or if so, please mark it solved.
