I am trying to import data into CRM on an XML file using a CRM template (customised data map). All along I've had no problems till we changed the entity from an option set to a lookup. When I select the required field to map to the Lookup, there is a pop up that comes up asking for a "related record type:Referred field: " of which there are no values relating to the lookup but the option set rather. How can I get it to point to the lookup field values?
Are you using the same template and trying to re-map it? I don't think you can do that between an option set (which will hold the option set value) and a lookup (which will refer to an entity) because the XML specifies the type of data that it is expecting. E.g. in my template for importing data there is a line-
<InputTitle>Data Type: Lookup.</InputTitle>
which specifies that the line must be a Lookup, not an option-set (yours would be the other way around).
You need to create a new template including a field for the new entity. Alternatively, you could edit the XML in your template but that is a lot more complicated and probably not worth the effort.
