Can anybody tell me how to migrate the custom objects fields etc into a developer environment from sandbox.

Possible Suggestion/Solution #1

The easiest way to migrate fields (and I assume you're talking about field definitions, not the data itself), is using the IDE.

  • Create a project for the sandbox
  • Select the custom object and/or fields using the Add/Remove Metadata feature.
  • Use the Deploy feature to deploy those fields to the developer enviornment.

You can also use the Migration Toolkit (Ant based), but it's more work.

Use the DataLoader to transfer any object data.

Possible Suggestion/Solution #2

You could also create a package and deploy that to your developer org then you don't need to install eclipse if you don't have it already.

to create a package you go to

Setup - App Setup - Create - Packages - New - you give your package a name and then you can add components just like you would do with a change set.

after that you can choose to upload your package. And with the url you can download and install it in the environment of your choice.
