Field descriptions

Hi there trying to extract my orgs fields with all the properties i,e. data type and if a picklist the values. I have found an app called cloud converter that does pretty much all i need apart from the description field, which we use heavily. Can anyone help me create an extract to get this info.


Thnaks in advance




Why don't you use IDE?


Because I am just starting out with using it and getting it installed and connected due to my works firewall was a victory. I don't know how to extract the info and present it in an excel format.

Install this SOQL query Tool in your Org and it should solve your purpose.


There is an command "desc sobjectname"   (e.g, desc Account) would give you all the fields with data type in tabular format.
