Can I import new list of Accounts & Contacts and overwrite the existing Accounts & Contacts list ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am using Dynamic CRM 2015.  I would like to know if  I can import a new list of Accounts & Contacts and overwrite the existing Accounts & Contacts list in Dynamic CRM 2015.

    There is relational data of Accounts & Contacts in Lead, Opportunity & other Custom entities.

    If I can overwrite the existing list of  Accounts & Contacts, then what will happen to the relational data of Accounts & Contacts in Lead, Opportunity & other Custom entities?

    Your reply will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi,

    I am afraid that importing records will not overwrite CRM records. Instead use BULK DELETE in CRM 2015.

    CRM will take care of the related records*.

    * It will decide whether to delete a record or not based on the records relationship behavior.

    Hope this helps,
