I have one trigger that updates records. Now i just wanted to know if we update those records with data loader. The D M L Operation code would perform or not. Because i need to update few existing records, so i developed trigger. I hope this trigger fire when record modified. But i need to update all at a time.

  • Are you asking if the data loader (or youe ETL tool of choice) fires triggers? If so, the answer is yes, they do. – Chris Duncombe Mar 28 '16 at 11:09
  • Yeah it is data loader. So for data loader update trigger will fire right? – Neymar Da Silva Mar 28 '16 at 11:13

Yes, Data Loader (or your ETL tool of choice) will fire triggers during mass data manipulations.

  • Can we import empty fields and update with empty data? Will it fire if we update with data. I hope it will be. – Neymar Da Silva Mar 28 '16 at 11:22
  • There is a setting in the data loader to insert null values. This will insert empty data. – Chris Duncombe Mar 28 '16 at 11:23
