Dynamics CRM 2011 Database Issue

Recently upgraded from Dynamics 4.0 to 2011. With 4.0, I was able to directly query the database using the contact and account views:

select * from Contact where ContactId = 'XXXX'

However, this no longer works with 2011. It seems I have to specify the actual base and extension tables now, which is a royal pain. For accounts, my queries would need to pull in accountbase, accountextensionbase, and then the relevant address tables. I don't understand why I can't use the account view?

Am I missing something?

Thanks,

Dave

I'm not entirely sure what specifically happened, but for some reason, all my activity records got screwed up in the upgrade. The contact associated with each activity was missing, so I was showing nulls in my query. They must have changed something in the db, or something is wrong with the ugprade (I'm guessing the latter).

Be careful if you upgrade to ensure that you activity assignments are correct. Mine certainly weren't.

Cheers,

Dave

Determined something wonky happened during the upgrade from 4.0 to 2011. Activity assignments were not correct after upgrade (contact associated with the activities were blank).
