I try to find the object for the Note related list on Account (NOT the notes and attachments list!). We have input in Notes, but when I query on the standard object Note no data is shown. Where can I access Notes programmatically?

You can find those records in ContentNote object. So you will have to do a SOQL on ContentNote and the link between ContentNote and any related record is stored in the ContentDocumentLink

You can go through the schema of ContentNote Objects for further help on this topic.

enter image description here

  • I have inserted a test Note and queried on "ContentNotification" (ContentNote is not available) and I do not get any results. Jul 19, 2019 at 4:39
  • What is the error you are getting when querying on ContentNote ? Jul 19, 2019 at 4:45
  • No, it did not return any records. Jul 19, 2019 at 4:48
  • The record does show in the object "Notes" though, but also the query on the standard object Note gives no result. Jul 19, 2019 at 4:49
  • I do not even see Note as an object in the Object Manager. Jul 19, 2019 at 4:50
