You are welcome.

The general steps for using the CLI are:

 

  • Create an encryption key using a seed
  • Create an encrypted password for the username DL uses to login in SF
  • Create a field mapping file
  • Create a process-conf.xml file with the configuration settings (this is is where all the actions are defined)
  • Run the process

 

If you need any more detailed help with one of these steps, please post back.
