In our Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 system, we have mapped a number of the attributes of two custom entities; however, all but one of the fields actually maps when we are using the system.

At this point, what would be the troubleshooting steps, as I have already ensured it was properly mapped, published, etc.? Are there particular types of fields/values that cannot be mapped?

What types are the attributes you are trying to map? I.e. nvarchar, picklist etc.

ID records - entity 1 has an associated Supplier record, and we want the supplier ID mapped to the supplier field in entity 2.

Ok so that sounds like the Suppler ID on Entity 1 is a lookup field - is that correct? Is the Supplier ID on entity 2 also a lookup field?

Well they are both custom entities so I'm not sure that the lookup would map - I think they would need to be in a Parent/Child situation for it it work. You could try this javascript on this post to achieve the lookup population: http://www.nathaneccles.com/?p=1090

I haven't been able to test this as I don't have your situation in my setup.
