  • Hi Sam,

    Download the SDK for Dynamics CRM 2011 from here : http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=24004.You should find a file named "SDK.REST.js" at "SDK\SampleCode\JS\RESTEndpoint\JavaScriptRESTDataOperations\JavaScriptRESTDataOperations\Scripts"

    Use that library Microsoft has provided to make the REST calls. The example of calling the function is present in the JavaScript file in that folder itself. Go through it and you should be able to get the idea of making REST calls using JavaScript. The function you need to use is "retrieveRecord".

    It should be something as follows:

    function retrieveContact(ContactId) {
     SDK.REST.retrieveRecord(
         ContactId,
         "Contact",
         "$select=FirstName,LastName",null,
         function (account) {
          //populate field in Account
         },
         errorHandler
       );
    }
