Upgrade to CRM 11: Invalid column name 'OwningUser' RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello CRM experts,

    After upgrade from 4.0 to CRM 11  we can't save anything to Account entity. In SQL Profile there is an error: Invalid column name 'OwningUser'. I looked in the AccountBase table - the column Owning User is missing. The field is not even on the Account form. But it is in the Field list on the entity.

    Is there work around/Fix ? I can't even delete this field from the Account Entity in my CRM 2011 deployment, get an error. 

    Need an urgent advise!

  • OwningUser was a virtual field in CRM 4.0, which is no longer relevant in CRM 2011, as teams can own records. The most likely cause of your problem is if there is some custom code (plugin, or client script) that attempts to reference this field, and this code is running when the account is saved
