CRM 2011 Setting Lookup Defaults

I have been able to set a default lookup  value (FreightName)  using the code below but when I try to set a second lookup (ShipName) , it wipes out my first lookup value and I end up with a value in ShipName but nothing in FreightName.  I have tried renaming the lookup elements but this gives me an error.

Please take a look at the code below and let me know what I can do to populate both lookups (actually I have third I need to populate as well)

Thanks

 
function populate(){
var proceedType = Xrm.Page.data.entity.attributes.get("csc_proceedwithquote");
    proceedType.setValue(1);
    Xrm.Page.getAttribute("csc_proceedwithquote").setSubmitMode("always");
    alert("proceedType");
    var proceedStatus = Xrm.Page.data.entity.attributes.get("csc_proceedwithquotestatus");
    proceedStatus.setValue(862430002);
    Xrm.Page.getAttribute("csc_proceedwithquote").setSubmitMode("always");
    alert("proceedStatusstatus");

    alert("Ribbon Editor Sln");

    FreightName();

    ShipName();


}

function FreightName() {

    var lookupValue = new Array();

    lookupValue[0] = new Object();

    lookupValue[0].id = "16F711C2-5C9C-E411-8DC3-005056897092";   // Guid Of That Look Up

    lookupValue[0].name = "Collect";                              // Name  Of That Look Up

    lookupValue[0].entityType = "Freight Term";                  // Entity Name Of That Look Up

    Xrm.Page.getAttribute("csc_freightterm").setValue(lookupValue);

}

function ShipName() {

    var lookupValue = new Array();

    lookupValue[0] = new Object();

    lookupValue[0].id = "1EF711C2-5C9C-E411-8DC3-005056897092";  // Guid Of That Look Up

    lookupValue[0].name = "Standard Priority";                   // Name  Of That Look Up

    lookupValue[0].entityType = "Shipment Priority";                  // Entity Name Of That Look Up

    Xrm.Page.getAttribute("csc_shipmentpriority").setValue(lookupValue);

}

hi,

You have given entity name. you should use the logical name of the entity. it should be like new_entityname

So, for example I should be doing the following?  (My prefix is csc_)

Instead of:
lookupValue[0].entityType = "Freight Term";                  // Entity Name Of That Look Up

Use:
lookupValue[0].entityType = "csc_freightterm";                  // Entity Name Of That Look Up

Does this look correct?

Thanks

When I changed to the code, it leaves both field empty.  The code changes below.  I may be putting the wrong value, e.g. csc_freightterm is the field name on the form.

  
function populate():

FreightName();

ShipName();


}

function FreightName() {

    var lookupValue = new Array();

    lookupValue[0] = new Object();

    lookupValue[0].id = "16F711C2-5C9C-E411-8DC3-005056897092";   // Guid Of That Look Up

    lookupValue[0].name = "Collect";                              // Name  Of That Look Up

[b]    lookupValue[0].entityType = "csc_freightterm";                  // Entity Name Of That Look Up
[/b]
    Xrm.Page.getAttribute("csc_freightterm").setValue(lookupValue);

}

function ShipName() {

    var lookupValue = new Array();

    lookupValue[0] = new Object();

    lookupValue[0].id = "1EF711C2-5C9C-E411-8DC3-005056897092";  // Guid Of That Look Up

    lookupValue[0].name = "Standard Priority";                   // Name  Of That Look Up

    [b]lookupValue[0].entityType = "csc_shipmentpriority";                  // Entity Name Of That Look Up
[/b]
    Xrm.Page.getAttribute("csc_shipmentpriority").setValue(lookupValue);

}

Ok, got the naming correct to populate the field but have a weird problem as far as what is written to the the fields. After the fields are populated, they look like the following and the form cant be saved.

How the lookups are populated by the code
If I use the spyglass to populate the lookups, then they look correct and the form can be saved.

How the lookups as populated by using the normal method
