Have the list of object filds by API

Hello,

I would like to have all the fields available in a Salesforce object, Standards and Custom fields merged would be perfect.

Can someone know how to get that?

Thank you

HI 

To get the api name of a objet simply go to setup type in name of object ie Opportunity and click on fields. Then simply copy and paste into excel
