  • Hi Rajitha,

    You could use some JavaScript like this to check if a file was attached via a note - it allows the initial save because you can attach anything to a record that isn't yet created - then checks on subsequent saves. You would just need to incorporate the logic to determine the circumstances under which that check should be made.

    function OnSave(exectionObj) {
        if (Xrm.Page.data.entity.getId() === null) return;
        var serverUrl = Xrm.Page.context.getClientUrl();
        var oDataSelect = serverUrl + "/XRMServices/2011/OrganizationData.svc/AnnotationSet?$filter=ObjectId/Id eq guid'" + Xrm.Page.data.entity.getId() + "'&$select=IsDocument";
        var allowSave = false;
        var req = new XMLHttpRequest();
        req.open("GET", oDataSelect, false);
        req.setRequestHeader("Accept", "application/json");
        req.setRequestHeader("Content-Type", "application/json;charset=utf-8");
        req.onreadystatechange = function () {
            if (req.readyState === 4) {
                if (req.status === 200) {
                    var retrieved = JSON.parse(req.responseText).d;
                    for (var i = 0; i < retrieved.results.length; i++) {
                        if (retrieved.results[0].IsDocument) {
                            allowSave = true;
        if (!allowSave) {
            alert("Attach a file via a note");

  • Hi Alessandro Graps,

    I Tried the code you provided it is preventing From Save Operation but in Notes it showing like "No records found" before and after save Operation !!! Please, Help Me.

  • Hi Rajitha,

    I don't understand the problem. because you have no records found because you don't save the note:


    and because there is not an attachment.
