I have a custom salesforce object that I am trying to insert data into via the salesforce data loader tool. I can only see the object when I click export and click on "show all salesforce objects". When I do the same thing when I click on insert the object does not show up. Any ideas why I can't see this?

    Verify the Object permission of the user’s profile – Santanu Boral Oct 18 '18 at 5:01
  • I would check the deployment status on the object itself to make sure it is deployed. Secondly I would check the profile of the person logging into the data loader to make sure they have access to the object. – Ayub Oct 18 '18 at 5:31
  • I have the admin profile and do have permission to all objects from what I can see, I just don't see that object listed online. I can only see it from the export tab. – MarkC5000 Oct 18 '18 at 11:37

You should give the custom object edit/modify all permission under object settings in profile of the user which is logged in the data loader. I made the following changes to a profile for a test object and gave it just read permission, I was able to view the object while exporting but not during insert or update operation.

  • I can't see the object from the online interface. I can only see it from the export tab in data loader. I have the administrator role and have permission to all objects but this one is not listed there. – MarkC5000 Oct 18 '18 at 11:35
  • I would urge you to login through UI and confirm the above permissions. Maybe your admin has cloned the administrator profile , made changes to it and assigned it to you. – user2246808 Oct 18 '18 at 14:28
