    How to insert a record in Salesforce using Javascript?

    Hi Parul,

    These are the steps to insert data using Javascript:

    1. Connecting to the AJAX Toolkit (By using login methods or getting Session_ID).
    2. Embedding the API methods in JavaScript.
    3. Processing the results.

    Example -

    var item = new sforce.SOBject('CustomObject__c');
    item.Name = 'Hello World';
    item.CustomField__c = new Date();
    sforce.connection.insert([item],{onSuccess:alert, onFailure:alert});

    Try this -

    <apex:page id=”pageId”>

    <script src=”/soap/ajax/20.0/connection.js” type=”text/javascript”></script>


    function insertAccount(){

    //Getting Session ID.

    sforce.connection.sessionId= “{!$Api.Session_ID}”;

    //Creating New Account Record.

    var account = new sforce.SObject(“Account”);

    //Getting Account Name from inputText.

    account.Name = document.getElementById(“pageId:frm:pb:pbs:pbsi:txtName”).value;

    //Create method

    var result = sforce.connection.create([account]);

    //Getting result

    if(result[0].getBoolean(“success”)) {

    alert(“New Account is created with id ” + result[0].id);



    alert(“failed to create new Account ” + result[0]);




    <apex:form id=”frm”>

    <apex:pageBlock title=”Insert Account” tabStyle=”Account” id=”pb”>

    <apex:pageBlockSection title=”Account Name” columns=”1″ id=”pbs”>

    <apex:pageBlockSectionItem id=”pbsi”>

    <apex:outputLabel value=”Name” />

    <apex:inputText title=”Name” id=”txtName” />




    <apex:commandButton onclick=”return insertAccount();” value=”Save”/>





    Hope this helps.
