Hi Agustina,

Thanks for your help. Can you please explain how can i use new files in apex and pass id in to get the content in attached pdf on attachment which is currently coming as damaged. How can i access an attachment in apex in lighting using child record id?

Please let me know if you have any idea on it.

Thanks,
Soumya

Hi Soumya,

Sorry for the very late response.

It's easy. Double check below links with information about Files (the object name is ContentDocument)
  1. https://docs.releasenotes.salesforce.com/en-us/winter16/release-notes/rn_chatter_files_related_list.htm
  2. https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.api.meta/api/sforce_api_objects_contentdocument.htm

Something else. Actually you need to create ContentVersion (https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.api.meta/api/sforce_api_erd_content.htm) because Salesforce does not allow you to create ContentDocument directly.  Then you can create several ContentVersion files with the same ContentDocumentId and the result is several version of the sema File that you can use on File related list.
