Salesforce Doubts

Hi Everybody.
I have been with some clients intersten on implement and here they are:
1.- Is it possible to create a PDF file from a custom report?
2.- The size of the attached files could be higher than 5 MB?
3.- Is it posible to extract information from an external Database by adding a custom icon and post that information in the opportunity screen before saving?
4.- Is it possible to create a memo custom filed in the Notes & Attachments related list?
Thank you all for your time to answer this Post

Correct me if Im wrong here, but Salesforce is mostly a place to store your data, give a uniform GUI and it gives you industry standard ways to move that data in or out any way you need to. I have an internal doing some fancy stuff that I wasnt able to get Professional Edition to do to my satisfaction.

A 5 meg text report is a HUGE PDF file, Ive got a 200 page PDF report with 10 columns and its under a meg. Are you talking 1000 page reports?

Enterprise Edition should give you all the flexiblity to handle all of those issues numerous ways.

Believe it or not, there is a company that handles PDF files with more than 1000 pages. Those files must be attached into a Case, I know that it sounds like a lot but that is the way the work.
Currently I need to create some kind of process that catch an XML files with people's information and to post it into a Case, I mean a button that extract the information to my case windows, do you know how can I solve this issue???
About reports I would like to know if there is a way to convert or export them into PDF files, because I just can see the CSV and XLS formats.
Thank you again.
Hi Edgar:

Can you elaborate the use case you have for the XML file and Cases?

Error Occurred: This error occurred when the flow tried to look up records: FROM Treatment_Plan__c WHERE ((Patient__c = 'asdfg')) LIMIT 1 ^ ERROR at Row:1:Column:54 invalid ID field: asdfg. You can look up ExceptionCode values in the SOAP API Developer Guide.
Here Treatment_Plan__c and Patient__c have Master Lookup.Also we are trying to create a Patient from Treatment Plan if it doesn't exists.and then Saving Treatment_Plan__c record These are done in flow.Please Help!!!

Hi Everyone ,

I just wrote a simple batch apex which will update account names with some text but its not working , could anyone suggest is there any mistake in SOQL? 
Please note I am just taking accounts which are starting from AccountTest and updating those records and following is my code:
global class BatchApexExample implements Database.Batchable<sObject> {
    global Database.QueryLocator start(Database.BatchableContext BC){
        string accRecords = 'AccountTest';
        String query = 'Select Name From Account WHERE Name LIKE \' '+accRecords+' %\'';
        return Database.getQueryLocator(query);
    global void execute(Database.BatchableContext BC,List<Account> accList){
        for(Account accToUpdate : accList){
            update accList;
        catch(Exception e){
    global void finish(Database.BatchableContext BC){


Thanks in Advance!

The key skills that you need to have to include: knowledge of basic object-oriented programming, knowledge of C# and JavaScript , and a strong design background. Aside from being able to write code, you also need to have the necessary skills to manage and model data.
