May be your hard coded RecordTypeID is not visible to the used profile.

Check your record type setting in your profile for account object.


The record type that you are assigning might be not available for the creating user profile , please checkmin profile list whether the allocated recordtype is available for user or not.

or you can write your query like--------


 Task t=new Task(WhatId=opp.id);
                        t.Type='To Do';
                        t.Subject='RFP Info Requested';
                        t.Status='Not Started';
                        t.RecordType=new RecordType(name='Client Task Record type');

upsert t;



ya the ID is not getting fetched as its not available in my user profile.

i am refering to this code an creating my application.

can u tel me how do i get the user ID for my insert query.

some how its a mandatory field so cant execute the query with out the recordType Id.

Kindly help me with the same....


Record type id is not a mandattory field skip that field.



If i execute the query with out RecordTyppeId this is the error msg that i am getting

12:52:31:019 FATAL_ERROR System.DmlException: Upsert failed. First exception on row 0; first error: CANNOT_INSERT_UPDATE_ACTIVATE_ENTITY, record type missing for: Account: []
