Hi,

I'm afraid you cannot Update/Delete custom object records using the inbuilt Import Wizard. Other than the Data loader, you can also use Workbench for this: https://developer.salesforce.com/page/Workbench

You may also go for appexchange solutions:

Programatically, you can use Batch Apex: https://www.salesforce.com/us/developer/docs/apexcode/Content/apex_batch.htm

Hello ,

you can update or delete using the developper console and by writting apex code ex:

List<Account> listAcctoDelete= [select id,name
                                                           from account
                                                             limit 200];

delete listAcctoDelete;

you can do the same for update.

Hi,

The Import wizard lets you import data for a custom objects.

You can also use Jitterbit to Delete/Update records, refer this link :
