Hi Guys,


I have to upload a self-parent(a object looks up itself) object using data loader.  


For example, we have 5 level location information.  Suburb, Area, Regional, State, Country.


The CSV file looks like below


Id,                                   ParentId            --------------------------- column name


StateId,                         countryId

RegionalId,                  StateId

AreaId,                          RegionalId

SuburbId,                     AreaId


The number of records in that CSV file is more than 5k. 

I got some errors like "without foreign key" when I upload the csv file with "upsert" operation.(I tried to upload small number of data with batch size one, and it succeeded)


I guess that salesforce cannot insert a record and upsert the secord record (based on the first record Id) in same batch process(batch size is 200), In other word, the parent and child records should not be included in the same batch.  But I couldn't split it into 5 different CSV files based on the location type(Suburb, Area, Regional, State, Country). 


Is there any way I could work around this issue?


Thanks in advance.






I will be automatically creating 2 files each day for uplaod into salesforce via apex data loader, a contacts and an account file.


The contacts file will need the sales force account id in order to link the 2 files once uploaded, however if I am uploading both a contact and an account (accunt is not pre existing) I will not be able to determine the account id for the contact.


What is the best method to obtain an account id?


So far I guess I will need to 1. create and upload account file 2. download account table 3. obtain sales force account id from the downloaded file 4. create and upload contact file


Obviously seems a little long winded to me, isnt there a better method for automated uploading with apex data loader

Hi guys,


I updated a file with 50 rows and got the "40 succeed"  but "0 errors"


I have then put separately the 10 rows and I got  "0 success" and "0" errors


Did you ever had the same issue, no error, no update.


I have full privileges.


Is there anything in the monitoring set up that might help me to check if there is any trigger or "whatever" not allowing me to do the update!


Is the first time I am having this issue???

I have been provided a spreadsheet that has a list of accounts without the corresponding Salesforce account record ID. What are my options for getting the IDs into the spreadsheet next to the appropriate account name? I need to do this to run some updates through the Apex Data Loader.



Database.com is proud to be connectable to ETLs.


I'd be very willing to use database.com for my analytics needs (although I'm not sure the REST API would be a good idea for this, given the amount of items), but I've no clue of how to connect database.com to ETLs such as Talend or Pentaho.


Any clues ?


Thank you !

I am trying ETL on data for custom objects in Salesforce Org. I am using MS Access to massage data which is really painful and suspicious because most of the versions of csv files are not supported in MS Access 2007. A random error " Could not find the file specified. Please check the extension of the fie" is thrown


I had used Talend Open Studio sometime back but could not import data for custom objects (called custom modules in Talend Open Studio). The error was something like "Could not recognize Object_Name. Please append __c if you are using a custom object."


Please let me know if anyone was able to import and export data for custom objects via Talend. Any pointers will be highly appreciated.


Thanks in advance.

Would you please help me to display Notes & Attachments on a Visual Force page having CUSTOM controller ?
Is there any tag for it ?


I'm a complete newbie to Salesforce.com and I have to load large amounts of data to the Salesforce.com database. If it's possible I'd like to avoid developing my own solution using the Apex API.
While searching the net for a possible solution, I stumbled on three tools.
The first tool I found in the Salesforce blog is named "Excel Connector"; unfortunately Excel is not (and should not be) involved in the upload process.
Next, I found "SForce Data Loader" on sourceforge.net and "arlanis Salesforce.com Data Exchange" on arlanis.org. Now, I'm not sure which one of these two tools best fits my needs. Any experiences or suggestions?

Thanks in advance
