Merge In Salesforce

To merge two or three records together, you need to use the merge statement.


List < Account > accList = [SELECT Name FROM Account LIMIT 3];
Account a = accList[0];
Account b = accList[1];
Account c = accList[2];
List < Account > mergeList = new List < Account > ();
merge a b; // for 2 records
merge a mergeList; // for 3 records


  • Merge only works with Accounts, Leads and Contacts.
  • You can merge 3 records at a time not more than that.

Different Merging Combinations:

  • sObject with sObject
  • sObject with List<sObject>
  • sObject with ID
  • sObject with List<ID>
