MS CRM 3.0: Unable to add products to opportunities.

We are about to roll out MS CRM 3.0 to around 25 users but I've hit a snag. No users are able to add opportunity products to an existing opportunity. When trying to save a selected product we recieve the following error message:

Record Is Unavailable
The record that you are requesting is currently unavailable. Either the record was not found or you do not have sufficient security permissions to view it.

It doesn't matter who owns the opportunity or who the user is (even Admin) and the security permissions look good. We have a test system set up on a Virtual Machine with an identical user/permissions setup and it works fine there. I'm guessing this may be a database issue.

We have a Microsoft CRM 3.0 Server running on MS Server 2003 R2 with Update Rollup 2 installed. The SQL Database is sitting on a seperate MS SQL 2000 server.

Can anyone help?

After having turned "DevErrors" on I have this more detailed message which hasn't helped me at all:

I've been having the same problem. The reason for this error is that the GUID that you've specified apparently doesn't exist. The issue I'm having is that it clearly does! I'm investigating further now and will let you know if I get to the bottom of this.

My error came from using the SDK. Turned out that one of my lookups was referencing a GUID that no longer exists. The GUID for the object did still exist and this is what I was checking. I would suggest that somehow your database base become corrupt and that it's trying to update a record where the lookup doesn't exist any longer. What happens if you copy the test database on to live server - do you get the same error then?

Using the test database everything worked fine. It's not a database problem though, it was a problem with some customisation added by our consultants. In the "Opportunity Product" Form there was some OnChange code in the properties of the Product field. This code directly used the UoMID to automatically populate the Unit field. It turns out that the UoMID was incorrect (for the live database) and doesnt reference anything in the table relevant. I corrected this and now everything works perfectly. :)

Thanks for the help and I hope this helps you with your problem too.
