Excel Add-In for Salesforce Marketing Cloud

Build 20.0.7695


Represents a data extension within an account.

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 DataExtension

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


You must specify the following fields when inserting to this table: Name, CustomerKey, and Fields.

Note: The Salesforce Marketing Cloud APIs have problems with DataExtensions with names longer than 40 characters. Try to limit the name to something relatively short.

INSERT INTO DataExtension (Name, CustomerKey,  Fields) VALUES('TestName', 'TestCustomerKey', 'fieldname1;fieldname2;fieldname3')


You must specify the ObjectId or CustomerKey or Name in the WHERE clause when executing an update against this table.

UPDATE DataExtension SET ResetRetentionPeriodOnImport=true WHERE ObjectId='nzxcaslkjd-123'


You must specify the ObjectId or CustomerKey or Name in the WHERE clause when executing a delete against this table.

DELETE FROM DataExtension WHERE ObjectId = 'nzxcaslkjd-123'
