load data for a child object


How will you load data for a child object?

If in a Master-detail relationship, you first need to insert all master records.

Then run a report to get all the Inserted Master record Id's and export them your machine.


Now to insert detail object records, you need to associate them with Master Record ID.

A possible approcah would be use VLOOkUP function in Excel to populate the Id's.


Once you have the ID's populated then you can insert Detail records using data loader.
