Creating an entity record with silverlight RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone,

    I posted a similar post earlier; but have decided to re-phrase the question in a way that I'm hoping is easier to answer.

    My issue is that I need to create opportunity records with Silverlight into CRM 2011.  I've been successful in creating a Contact but not in Opportunity.  Could anyone either explain to me what needs to be done to create an opportunity record, or how to do it?

                    // call the Create method
    example - silverlightutility.cs
                    myOrgService.BeginCreate(myOpp, myCreateHandler, myOrgService);
                    MessageBox.Show("after create");
    The code i based this off of was from this blog
