If a case is resolved, you can't make any further updates to the record, otherwise you will receive an error indicating the case has been resolved, it needs to be reopened in order to make changes. This applies to other entities that might have similar restrictions, and it imposes a challenges to data integration (or ETL) development. In this blog post, I will show you how to work around this situation.
