doubt on Data Import

Hi All, 
When Updating Contact Email Through Import Wizard, i tried using  two approaches 
1. contact name, account name
2. contact email id,contact id
Both work fine,but when there are duplicate contacts under account then only one of them gets updated . Hence i assume option 2 is the right way to go.Can someone confirm?

Hi Alekhya,

I found a link that could be of help can you try checking it out:



It is always advisable to add record-id in the update call it might me Account, Contact or any custom object. 

In your case, you want to update Contact-Email so, it is better to use Contact-Id as compare to Account to uniquely identify the specific record in salesforce.
