Updating CRM Picklists via SSIS Script in C#

This took me a lot of figuring out… hopefully it will save you some time.

The problem was that I was trying to update contact fields that were of the “picklist” property in CRM. ( Basically a look up field ).

After much trial and error this is the code that works. Firstly though you need to figure out the index value of the picklist to update. Then here is the basic code.


var p = new Picklist();
p.Value = Row.yourfield;
p.name = “new_yourfield”;

cont.new_yourfield = p;
