How can i upload csv file data into custom object (without using dataloader and documents)

  Hi Guys, i have one scenario  like ,i have custom object with custom fields and i want insert csv file data in to custom object and how can i do that without using dataloader and documents so kindly let me know ASAP any solution ..


you can create an application in java or dotnet to read the csv file and update the data to the custom object using enterprise wsdl (API).




You can use Import wizard. If the number of records is less than 50k.


But I dont think that you are not aware of it. Any special reason to not use the data loader?






Thanks srikanth for giving idea ,Is any other possibility is there apart from java&.net ,i mean any appexchange is available for this.if so kindly let me know.


Thanks shra , I have scenario like this,i am not aware of import wizard ,you are telling that records should be less than 50 k but if it is exceeds then it wont be applicable for that?Kindly let me know any solution..




If your records are more than 50k then you need to go to Data Loader for importing the records.




Hi, i have fallow This Import Wizard,go to Data Management->Import Custom Objects then import  

After mapping the field i am getting this error "Error: Record Owner field is not mapped" .In step 3:which one i have to select

1-Name Id



Below that "Which lookup fields, if any, are included in your import file?" if i have lookup then only i can select the fields right?

Let me know the process ASAP





1.You need to select Name,if you have llokup fileds the only you need to select that field.

  You need to specify the Name in your CSV file.

2.Though you get error as Owner Field not mapped you proceed to next step and 

deploy the records you will get those records.
