Issue with importing data into an object which has lookups. Need to know how to successfully load the data from a csv file. As it loads only non lookup fields and the rest are null. Please help. :(
Use quotes for CSV fields which contain commas.
Thank you for replying.
I do not think thats the issue. I created an object A with another object B as a lookup by creating relationship in Object A.
Now I'm trying load Object A using an XLS file, its loading other fields except the lookup. Please advice.
In the Import screen, you need to map a unique column to in your CSV that matches an existing field in your Object B records. This way the system will know how to attach your imported A records with B records that exist already.
Hope this helps,
I'm running into this same issue.
I have an employees object and a skills object.
Skills are a lookup field in my employee object.
Employees can have multiple skills.
I have a csv spreadsheet that has the skills defined within quotes.
Every time I try to import the records the skills field remains blank. What am I doing wrong?
