I am having issues with Upserting data. Here is my code:

global static void MyMethod(string param1, string objName, string param2) {

    CustomObject__c record = new CustomObject__c();
    record.Param1__c = param1;          
    record.Name = objName; 
    record.Param2__c = param2;
    record.User__c = UserInfo.getUserId();
    record.UpsertField__c = param1 + '_' + UserInfo.getUserId();
    //upsert record UpsertField__c;

    List<CustomObject__c> myRecords = new List<CustomObject__c>();

    Schema.SObjectField f = CustomObject__c.UpsertField__c;
    Database.UpsertResult[] urList = Database.upsert(myRecords, f);
    for (Database.UpsertResult ur : urList) {
        if (ur.isCreated) {
            //set counter to 1 on custom object, something like:
            record.Counter__c = 1;
        } else {
            //increment counter by 1


Error: Compile Error: Variable does not exist: isCreated at line 25 column 20

My understaing is that 'isCreated' is part of UpsertResult class. Please help me what I'm doing wrong here

isCreated is a method that returns a boolean value, not a boolean property. As such this is what you want to do


UpsertResult Class

Additionally, this will fail as well ur.Counter__c = 1; as there are no custom fields possible on UpsertResult

  • I meant it was record.Counter__c. So is there a way to update that field on the custom object that is upserted (if that's a word)

  • @user569925 - Just set it prior to the dml.

  • @user569925 - You will need a separate DML to do it in code. I misread what you were trying to do.
