Excel Add-In for Salesforce Marketing Cloud

Build 20.0.7695


A ContentArea represents a defined section of reusable content.

Table-Specific Information


The add-in uses the Salesforce Marketing Cloud APIs to process the following WHERE clause operators for all but date-time values: =, !=, <>, >, >=, <, <=, IN. For date-time values, only > and < are supported. The add-in processes other filters client-side within the add-in. You can turn off the client-side execution of the query by setting SupportEnhancedSQL to false in which case any search criteria that refer to other columns will cause an error.

For example, the following (but not only) queries are processed server side:

SELECT * FROM ContentArea

SELECT * FROM ContentArea WHERE Id = 123

SELECT * FROM ContentArea WHERE Id IN (123, 456)

SELECT * FROM ContentArea WHERE CreatedDate > '2017/01/25'


You must specify the following fields when inserting to this table: Name and Content.

INSERT INTO ContentArea(Name, Content) VALUES('Testing', 'Hello world')


You must specify the Id in the WHERE clause when executing an update against this table.

UPDATE ContentArea SET Name='Changed' WHERE Id=123


You must specify the Id in the WHERE clause when executing a delete against this table.

DELETE FROM ContentArea WHERE Id = 123
