8.How to handle comma fields while uploading using Data loader?

Data Loader cannot handle commas implicitly because there is no logical path to follow. If we have any comma field in the Data Loader CSV file for import of the field content, we have to close the content with double quotation marks “content “. Then data Loader will be able to handle this operation.

9.After Exporting data using Data Loader, Some time it appears that data is on New Line (Carriage Return) when we open CSV file in Microsoft Excel. For example, Address Data separated on different lines. How can we override this problem?

Excel does all sorts of “useful” operations when it opens a CSV file. It will re-format dates, strip leading zeros, corrupt record IDs if you have them in your report, and also break line. Best way as per my experience is Upload document to Google Drive. Export document back from Google drive as Excel.

10.Explain me about Export and Export all in Data Loader?

Difference between Data loader ‘Export’ & ‘Export All’ is very small. Export button is used to export all records of a particular object in the system to a .csv file( excluding records present in Recycle Bin). But when we use Export All, all records (including records present in Recycle Bin) for that particular object are exported to a .csv file. Deleted records present in recycle bin are also called ‘soft Deleted’ records.
