When you use the Advanced Find function to view saved views in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0, you may receive the following error message:
There was an error in showing this linked entity.
This problem occurs if the saved views were created in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0, and you updated Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 to Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0.


This problem occurs because the linked entities were related to one another directly, and the relationship did not include the intersect entity in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0. However, in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0, relationships must include the intersect entity to return the clauses correctly in the Advanced Find form. Because upgrading Microsoft Dynamics CRM does not change user queries that were created in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0, the saved views generate an error message when you use them in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0.


This problem is fixed in the latest cumulative update rollup for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
