Is there a way to do this?

Here's a breakdown of what has been requested of my batch code:

We are working on a large integration with our Salesforce and various other divisions/mainframes. The goal is to completely eliminate the mainframes as they are acting as "middle men" between the other divisions and us not to mention they were built 25+ years ago and are outdated at this point. One division will be pushing us data to our Mule in the form of a .txt file and then Mule will insert the lines in that file as a text field into a Staging object. My batch then picks new records up from Staging and parses the record details into fields in a Master object. I use Database.Upsert() with an external ID to move those details into Master. 

With the current example we have gotten from the division we are integrating into our SF org, there are some lines of data that have the same external ID (these would be concidered updates to the record). The below image shows an example (there are 3 external IDs here).

Record line example

As expected when I pass my list of Master data to be upserted, I get the dreaded "Duplicate external id specified: 59XXXXXXXX01" error when the batch gets to these records and they do not upsert at all. I've been told that this scenerio should not exist outside of my test data I was sent, and that when we go live I will not receive multiple external ids in a day; but of course, we want to code to handle this situation just in case. 

Is there a work around for this scenario where I can force the first record to upsert and then come back and process the second record? We will have change history tracking set up for the Master object and it is required that we have history of every update for each Master record. Inserting or updating all records that we are sent is mandatory.

I was thinking that I could change my Upsert to accept a single record and process the records in the batch individually, but would that defeat the purpose of a batch class and cause DML governor limits to be hit for large transactions like I suspect? Should I use Database.Insert() and Database.Update() separately instead of Database.Upsert()? I'm trying my hardest to keep my DML operations to bare minimum (with Database.Upsert() I am performing 4 DML operations.)

Any advice on how to create a workaround would be extremely helpful and greatly appreciated. 





 
I am parsing an application into XML format and the expected return value for dates is DD-MMM-YY. The fields in question are parsed inside of a for loop. The first iteration returns the correct format for DOB, but the second iteration returns wrong. I'm hoping that someone can help me pinpoint what the issue is here.

Thanks in advance! 

Apex Code: 
for(Integer i=0; i< memToXML.size();i++){
      w.writeStartElement(null,'DOB','');
      String dt =   DateTime.newInstance(memToXML[i].DOB__c.year(),memToXML[i].DOB__c.month(),memToXML[i].DOB__c.day()).format('DD-MMM-YY');
      system.debug('>>> Converted DOB: ' + dt);
      w.writeCharacters(dt);
      w.writeEndElement();

XML output:
Member One:  <soapenv:DOB>02-Jan-80</soapenv:DOB> ***Original 1/2/1980***
Member Two:  <soapenv:DOB>196-Jul-99</soapenv:DOB> ***Original 7/15/1999***

 
Hi everyone.

I have a Visualforce page and custom controller that will update a record. I have run into an issue when I click my commandButton. The value I enter into my inputText field is not being grabbed by the controller.

These are the results that I am getting for the uncommented code in updateFields() (This is WITH data entered into the fields):
 1. Errors: You must enter data to update. Your update did not save.
2. DEBUG [33] >>> Input FN: null
3. Attempt to de-reference a null object error. 

These are the results that I am getting for the commented code in updateFields() (This is WITH data entered into the fields):
 1. Errors: Can't update First Name. Your update did not save.
2. DEBUG [48] >>> Input FN: null
3. Attempt to de-reference a null object error. 


Does anyone have any idea of why my inputText value is not being passed into the controller? 
Hi all,

I have been working on this for quite some time and I think that I may have to take a different approach. I am trying to convert a "guest user" (Contact) into a Registered (Customer Community) User based on the current Application that is pulled up in a community for company admins. I am doing this by building an extension on the existing controller for the page where agents can pull the application up.

I added a inputText and button to the page where the agent can enter in an email. This code updates the Contact record fine, as well as creates the associated Account. I want the code to update the Account, not create an entirely different one. This is supposed to be handled by passing methods from the original controller, but I'm running into snags here and there where the User is not being created at all and the Account that is created/updated is not being reflected in the Application record. For instance, where a guest user has filled an application they are assigned to "Guest Account" which is a placeholder of sorts for that person's application. This is also visible on the Application record in the Related_object__c field. When I enter an email in the field on my page, it updates the contact information and adds the Contact to "Firstname Middlename Last Name Account" but doesn't not update the Application's Related_Account__c field. 

I'm also unfamiliar with Page References so I may be going about using them incorrectly. 

I currently get an error "Variable does not exist: updatedCon" when I attempt to pass an SObject variable as parameter (declared and returned from changeGuestUser) method. I think I just need another pair of eyes to get this working as I have it thusfar. 

Thanks!

I'm trying my hardest to keep my DML operations to bare minimum (with Database.Upsert() I am performing 4 DML operations.)

Does anyone have any idea of why my inputText value is not being passed into the controller? 
Hi all,

I have been working on this for quite some time and I think that I may have to take a different approach. I am trying to convert a "guest user" (Contact) into a Registered (Customer Community) User based on the current Application that is pulled up in a community for company admins. I am doing this by building an extension on the existing controller for the page where agents can pull the application up.

I added a inputText and button to the page where the agent can enter in an email. This code updates the Contact record fine, as well as creates the associated Account. I want the code to update the Account, not create an entirely different one. This is supposed to be handled by passing methods from the original controller, but I'm running into snags here and there where the User is not being created at all and the Account that is created/updated is not being reflected in the Application record. For instance, where a guest user has filled an application they are assigned to "Guest Account" which is a placeholder of sorts for that person's application. This is also visible on the Application record in the Related_object__c field. When I enter an email in the field on my page, it updates the contact information and adds the Contact to "Firstname Middlename Last Name Account" but doesn't not update the Application's Related_Account__c field. 

I'm also unfamiliar with Page References so I may be going about using them incorrectly. 

I currently get an error "Variable does not exist: updatedCon" when I attempt to pass an SObject variable as parameter (declared and returned from changeGuestUser) method. I think I just need another pair of eyes to get this working as I have it thusfar. 

Thanks!

We are trying to expedite our project processes. Each project has a couple different tasks associated with it so we thought having a barcode associated with each task so all we have to do is scan the barcode to log time spent, instead of our employees having to login and manually put in all their hours. Any thoughts?
