I ma using the code below to add a new contact and attach it to an account.  The contact gets added OK but the parentcustomerid does not seem to get added.


 
Private Function AddNewContact(ParentAccount As Guid, ParentAccountName As String, Firstname As String, Lastname As String, Email As String, Tel As String) As Guid

        Dim newcontact As New Entity()
        newcontact.LogicalName = "contact"

        Dim newcontactColl As New AttributeCollection()
        newcontactColl.Add(New KeyValuePair(Of String, Object)("parentcustomeridtype", 1))
        newcontactColl.Add(New KeyValuePair(Of String, Object)("parentcustomeridname", "parentcustomerid"))
        newcontactColl.Add(New KeyValuePair(Of String, Object)("parentcustomerid", ParentAccount))
        newcontactColl.Add(New KeyValuePair(Of String, Object)("firstname", Firstname))
        newcontactColl.Add(New KeyValuePair(Of String, Object)("lastname", Lastname))
        newcontactColl.Add(New KeyValuePair(Of String, Object)("telephone1", Tel))
        newcontactColl.Add(New KeyValuePair(Of String, Object)("emailaddress1", Email))
        newcontact.Attributes = newcontactColl

        Dim ContactID As Guid
        ContactID = Client.Create(newcontact)

        Return ContactID

    End Function

Hi VolunteerDevelopmentAgency,

newcontactColl.Add(New KeyValuePair(Of String, Object)("parentcustomeridtype", 1))
newcontactColl.Add(New KeyValuePair(Of String, Object)("parentcustomeridname", "parentcustomerid"))
newcontactColl.Add(New KeyValuePair(Of String, Object)("parentcustomerid", ParentAccount))

Open in new window

               

I think it should be like this
newcontactColl.Add(New KeyValuePair(Of String, Object)("parentcustomerid", new EntityReference("account", parentcustomerid)))

Open in new window


If this code does not work then sorry as I am not comfortable with VB.Net, I have provided a C# style code.

Regards,
Chinmay.
