Salesforce: Identifying Type of Object For Exported Note Record

During data import, there are some object export that are related to another object. The object relationship is only referenced using ID, hence, it’s impossible to identify the object type that it’s related to.

Here we would like to share the parameter you should use to know the object type that is related to Note. The following is a data export of note record.

 

ID PARENTID
0037Y00000IYSMnTNO 0086000000StCDiGTW

 

To get the associated object:

 

ID PARENTID PARENT.TYPE
0037Y00000IYSMnTNO 0086000000StCDiGTW Opportunity

 

From the above, you will see the note is related to the opportunity object.
