Hi All,

 

Can opportunity record type be updated through data loader as it can't be extracted through data loader.Is it possibleto to mass update record type of opportunity object.

When dealing with Record Types in data loader, Record Types are treated as another object. You are able to export Record Types and only update certain information .

 

If you are trying to change record types for Opportunity records, you can change it through the Data Loader. You need to use the 15 or 18 character id of the recordtype and map it to the RecordTypeId.

 

Does this help you?
