How do I move a standard object in my dev environment to a config sandbox through IDE?

Might have missed a tutorial on this but I need to move an account object from a dev to config sandbox through IDE. Any suggestions?


You need to get the Account.object metadata file in your IDE and deploy it to sandbox as you deploy the other code .  Moving standard object is same as moving custom objects.  Get their metadata file ".object" and deploy it. 

Hi Sean,

As rightly pointed out by Esp, assuming you have the project setup on the Eclipse and added the objects metadata, just
1. Right click on the object > Deploy to Server.
2. Provide your credentials on the Component Deployment screen.
3. Validate and then deploy as necessary.

Please mark this as a solution if this helps.



First you have to extract the Dev org standard objects by creating a new project by giving the credentials of the Dev Org. please click Choose Metadata to select Standard objects. After creation of the project, you deploy that particular object to sandbox by giving the credentials of Sandbox.
