Example of Batch Apex

Batch Class: Update All the Old Opportunities in Org using Batch with criteria :

Update custom picklist field “Type”

If Amount is >=100 then “LITE”,

Else if Amount is >=200 then “MEDIUM” ,

Else if Amount is >=300 then “ADVANCE”

Also, create a scheduler class to run the batch job at 01:00 AM.

Batch Class Code

global class LeadProcessor implements    Database.Batchable<Sobject> ,Schedulable{
    string Query;
    global Database.QueryLocator start(Database.BatchableContext bc) {
        Query = 'Select id, name, Amount,StageName,Custom_Type__c,Type  From Opportunity';
        return Database.getQueryLocator(query);
    global void execute(Database.BatchableContext bc, List<Opportunity> Scope1){
        for(Opportunity p : Scope1){
            //   system.debug('@'+p.stage__c);    
            if(p.Amount <= 100){
            else if(p.Amount <= 200){
            else if (p.Amount <= 300){
            //    Scope1.add(p);  
        update scope1;
    global void finish(Database.BatchableContext bc){   }    
    global void execute(SchedulableContext sc) {
        LeadProcessor b = new LeadProcessor();
