Creating a Package to Extend an Existing Custom Object

Hi,

I've had a custom object in my production org for a while.  I want to update the custom object with some VisualForce and Apex code -- but when I create it in a sandbox, it packages *everything* up, including the original custom object, so I can't then install that package, because all of the "original" custom object pieces collide in the production org.

(This is certainly a newbie question, as this is my first real VisualForce example)

Thanks,
Michael

Hi Michael,

The best tools for this are the deployment wizard in the Force.com IDE or the Force.com Migration Tool. See the guide below for more information:
