Is it possible to import custom fields into salesforce.

I have a csv file that has about 30 custom fields that I need to add to salesforce.  The file has the field type like text(255), Date, Checkbox, and so forth.   Is there any way to import them into salesforce?  I would be interested in any option even if it requires the ide or an app.  Thanks.


You can use Force.com IDE. You can extract the object in which you want to add the fields and add the xml tags for the new fields. Once added you can save the new xml metadata to the object.

This is no longer a working app, SFDC purchased them in 2011 and no one is maintaining it.  What a surprise.
