"High Level" Fetch XML Question - CRM 2011 MS Hosted RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey Everyone,

    Just starting out here with MS CRM 2011 and trying to get a better understanding (high level) of Fetch XML and hosted CRM.  My question is this...  When doing a Fetch, can the Fetch retrieve all of the fields at say, the Account level without the need to individually name them? And if so, how?  I've created "baby" Fetches from Advanced Finds, but it only gives me "X" amount of fields to play with.  Granted, I could be doing something wrong there too...

    I already have BIDS installed so am also learing that too.  (Come from a SalesLogix/Crystal Report background, so a bit of a learning curve with all of this newness).

    Thanks in advance for any thoughts/info/assistance on this question.

    Take care,
