I have a semilar problem

I'm trying to analyse the potential impact of proposed changes to picklist values. Is there any tool or utility available which assists with this?

I'm finding it particularly time consuming having to open the definitions of a huge set of Reports to determine whether or not the fields in question are used as selection criteria.

Also i need to know if the changes to the piclist values effects any VF pages and WF?

In short how do i start doing impact analysis? And how to know where all the field is used?

Silwood Technology produce a product called Safyr that reverse engineers Salesforce metadata using the Metadata API.  You can make datamodels in a range of environments using this, and also it has a comparison feature so that metadata from different instances or taken at different times can be compared.

Hi all,

Might be late to the party, but my company ( has an app that tackles the subjet of Salesforce Backup & Restore, as well as Salesforce Release Management. Within the RMT suite, there's a product called odaseva Impact, which allows you check the level of impact of your application changes before attempting them.
