Custom Objects - Importing Data

I would like to import some data into custom objects I have created. Is this possible through the salesforce.com interface, or do I need to use the API and create my own import program?

Thanks,

Tym.

Hi tym,

You will need to use the api to access custom objects.  Custom fields on standard objects are available in the UI.

Is there an easier way to import data into these custom objects - ie. I am thinking of creating a function which will parse an XML file and import the data into the table through a program I have written... or is there a way we can just feed the api a xml, or cvs file and it will automatically populate the database?

 

Thanks again in advance,

Tym.

Hi Tym,

 

Can you please provide some sample code, how to parse XML and create records in salesforce.com?

 

Thanks
