How can Contracts be activated using the Data Loader?

Knowledge Article Number 000004278
Description

I am getting an error message when importing contracts with status "activated"in Data Loader:Invalid status. How can Contracts be activated using the Data Loader?

Resolution

To activate Contracts using the Data Loader, the Status field needs to be updated with the value "Activated".  In addition, the StartDate should be before the current date and the EndDate should be after the current date.

 

Please note that it is not possible to insert and activate Contracts in a single step.  Contracts must first be inserted with a Status of Draft and then after inserting, they can then be updated with a status of Activated.  If you attempt to insert a Contract with Status = Activated, you will get the following error: Invalid Status.
