I have a question.
If there are 10 records in a csv file. And we are trying to insert the data using Data Loader. First 6 records were inserted and suddenly I have stopped the operation. Now again I need to insert from Seventh record as first 6 are already inserted.
Can I acheive in Data Loader using only "Insert"? (Without Upsert, Update and any other format)
Please, any help?

Hey Imran, 

Yes. You can acheive this with Data Loader using only Insert operation. Once you have stopped the operation in the middle, you will get a success file for successfully inserted records. Then you have to compare the success file (a file with 6 successfully inserted records) with the source file (the file having 10 records). By using V-lookup in .csv files, you can get the remaining records to be inserted in a seperate file (you will get the remaining 4 records). Then again start inserting them. This won't use Upsert or Update. Hope this helps.

Regards,
Venkatesh.
