CRM 4 to 2011 migration: picklist options RRS feed

  • Question

  • After migrating a CRM 4 organization to CRM 2011 using the import organization option of the deployment tool,
    the customer told me that their picklists showed other options.

    Turns out, that for the default picklist fields (that come out of the box), the default language labels were added for default (out of the box) options.

    Example... account field customertypecode

    before...

                      </option>
                      <option value="10">
                        <labels>
                          <label description="Klant" languagecode="1033" /> // default option "Supplier" was changed to "Klant" (customer) in CRM 4 organization
                        </labels>
                      </option>

    after... (dutch and german language packs installed)

                      </option>
                      <option value="10">
                        <labels>
                          <label description="Klant" languagecode="1033" />
                          <label description="Leverancier" languagecode="1043" /> // added by CRM during import organization
                          <label description="Lieferant" languagecode="1031" /> // added by CRM during import organization
                        </labels>
                      </option>

    They work with the dutch language setting.
    Result of this, is that accounts with relationship type "Klant" (customer) are shown as "Leverancier" (supplier).

    Imo when importing an organization, CRM shouldn't add labels. It makes no sense.
