  • Hi Chandra,

    We can able to achieve this using javascript and plugin with the below steps,

    1. Trigger the action (OnSave, Field Change, Button Click...etc)

    2. Form the EntityReference with the Guid which is stored in the textbox

    3. Retrieve all the associated subgrid records for the parent record

    4. Update the associated records with the EntityReference

    Let me know if still you cannot able to achieve your requirement.

  • Hi,

    Refer this post:


    Showing the data in a subgrid involves the data being associated into the target entity for which you showing the data.

    1. For Associating the record, refer this link
    2. In case, you are not associating an existing record and want to create a new record to be displayed in your grid, refer this link or you may refer to the SDK sample for the rest or jquery operations. For doing this through .NET you can write plugin which you can also refer from the CRM SDK samples.

    I hope this helps to resolve your query.

    Thanks & Regards,

  • Hello Chandra,

    If you know how to write ODATA query ,then u would not require any example here. You can easily do Google for the same.

    We can guide you here for the Steps to follow.

    As Prabhu describes, please wrote your ODATA query (with Assign request of CRM SDK).
