Beginner Data Loader question

I am testing out the data loader and am having a problem. I am trying to load a campaign record and though it tells me the load was successful I can not see the campaign record through the UI. What methods are there to see if it was actually inserted or to figure out what the issue is? thanks!
If you can't see a campaign a couple things come to mind:
  • do you have rights to campaigns
  • are you marking the campaign active when you create it
When the loader returns successful, you can open the results in Excel. do that and grab one of the id's from the returned list. try to visit that id by going to http://na1.salesforce.com/[put your id here]. If you're not on the na1 server, use whatever root url you are on.

hope that helps
Check to see that you've set the "IsActive" flag to true (1).  I don't think that inactive campaigns don't show up in list views unless you either make them active, or explicitly include inactive campaigns in the query.
