I have account lookup field on a custom object. I want to import records through CSV file using data loader, but this file only have Account name, not ID. How can I import this file in salesforce? As I believe entering Account Id in each record is very long process.
We used to do a vlookup in excel and get Salesforce record Ids of parent, prepare the excel sheet and use dataloader to import.
But I think Dataloader.io provides a functionality out of box - Using Import Lookups
You may try any of these options.
