integration with child and parent relationships

    hi there,
I have an external system in place communicating with my SF. So far, I sent in object by object. If i want to send in info to a custom object that is related to the master object is this possible and how . . .
Thank you!

Hudi -

If I understand your question correctly, you want to have a master-detail relationship where data in both objects is being updated from an external system.  In order to implement this, you will have to have the data that relates the objects be declared as an external ID for the master.  That will allow the value to be used in creating the relationship with the child.  This capability will be available in the Summer 07 release.

Hope this helps.
