    How to Check Object’s Schema In Salesforce

    Updated 1 July 2016

    Today we will learn how we can check the Schema of Objects in Salesforce. In Salesforce Objects are used to store data. Objects work similar to tables. A object contains fields and records. The Fields are used like columns  and The Records are used like rows in a database. An Object may be link to the other objects, means an object may use data of other objects same like we relate one table to others by using primary and foreign keys.

    Two types of Objects are used in Salesforce as followed:

    1. Standard Objects : These are those objects, provided by salesforce by default. We can use those objects to store the data like :
      • Orders Object :- We can store the order related information into this object, like Contract Id, Account Id, Order Date, Status, Billing Address and Shipping Address also.

      Order Object

      • Products Object :- Product related details we can store into this object like product name,  code and description.

      • Account Object :- We can store Organization related data in this object, An account can have multiple Contact Object data.
