CRM 4.0 - Cannot IMPORT data as it says it is assigned to an "Organization" RRS feed

  • Question

  • CRM 4.0 ---

    Please trying to import data to an entity, but keep getting error saying - Cannot IMPORT data as it says it is assigned to an "Organization".

    Error is:

    "The 'Entity Name' record type is owned by the organization.  Therefore, imported records cannot be assigned to a user."

    Please how can I get around this error and import the data?  Change the owner of the entity to "what"?  How would I do that and where within CRM? 

    Please any help is greatly appreciated.

  • You can't have an ownerid if the entity is owned by an org. You need to get the ownerid column out of your import file. Or if you really need to have ownerid, you would need to drop the entity and recreated it as user/team owned.

  • Thank you for your reply.  Please note that there is no ownerid in the import file.  Would my only option then be to drop the entity and recreated it as user/team owned?
