    Hi
    Apex Data Loader :- It provides an easy interface and self-explanatory wizard to load the data into Salesforce. You can perform import operation from this wizard but delete and insert operations cannot be performed through this wizard. Data import wizard doesn’t allow to load the duplicate records and all fields can be individually mapped by this wizard within Salesforce.
    Import Wizard :- Data Loader is the most efficient tool that is used to move data rapidly into the platform. The tool provided by Salesforce helps perform insert, update and delete operations on Salesforce records. It enables you to interact with your data within Salesforce across all objects.
    Data loader can help in various ways such as:
    Inserting data from one system to another upon the initial implementation of Salesforce Updating bulk records with new data Deleting bulk records that aren’t required any more Exporting data to other systems Create a backup of previous data.
