It sounds like a customization.  What type of Activity is it (Phone Call/Task/etc)?  Can you check the onLoad scripts on that Activity type to see if there is anything that modifies the customer field?

It is happening in all Activity types that  "use" the customer object.

The odd thing is that it only happens when you go through a Case aka Incident screen.
When creating the same activity from the Accounts screen, the Customer name is populated correctly.

All the activity types have no onLoad events.

Can you post a screen shot?  If you save the activity, does the customer text persist?

Saving the activity does NOT remove the 'Customer' text from the name.
Also if you click to open the customer account/user  it does open the correct account/user details.
Almost like it is pointing and referencing the right account, but just the text in the text box its self is appending some sort of label.

Fyi, this field is also being populated from a look up of existing accounts/users.

What about the onchange event for the Recipient field on the activity form.  Any custom code there?

If you search for the customer (contact record again) using the lookup tool in the recipient field, does the "customer" text get appended again?

There is no custom code in the onChange event for any of the the activities.

And No, the 'Customer' text does not appear in the look up view. xyzCustomer is not even a valid choice in the look up view.

I have a vague recollection of seeing something like this before but I can't remember much about it. What Update Rollup do you have installed?

Odd - according to this KB, it says saving the activity should get rid of the text, but you said that it doesn't.  

I did a search in the customer source KB and couldn't find anything on this.

Also FYI, the most current update rollup is 19:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2550097

There is nothing in the release notes for rollup 19 that point to the KB above, so I don't know that updating to 19 will resolve the issue.  But if you try to stay current on the rollups anyway, that might be a good next step to see if it has any effect on the error.

Thanks for the FYI, I updated with the newest rollup and as we envisaged the problem still exists!

I have searched through many KB articles and forums and cant seem to find anything that will help resolve this problem.

Does anyone have any last suggestions?

Do you have SA on CRM?  If so, your are entitled to X# of free support calls.  They would be able to confirm if it is still known behavior.

It's hacky, but you could add an onload javascript customization that removes the text.  

Other than that, I'm out of ideas.  Maybe Feridun, the other Expert who has replied, has come up with something?

Thanks for your help and suggestions. This Is very buggy. I  guess the temporary solution would be to insert the code into the onLoad event as mentioned above. Maybe an update to Dynamics 2011 in the future will completely fix this.

I'm sorry but I can't recall how I solved the problem that I had.

Unfortunately there is no clear fix or reason why this string is stuck this field. A custom workaround here is the only acceptable solution.
