Error creating new Opportunity in Dynamics

I have a form that I am using to generate an new Account and Opportunity in Dynamics CRM. I create the new Account just fine but I am getting a 400 'Bad Request - Error in query syntax' message. I don't know what is causing it.


Here is my flow:



Any thoughts?

I solved it. Turns out that Potential Customer type is a GUID rather than a name. Once that was set, everything worked as planned,

Hi MikeRogers,


Do you mean that you are able to create the new account successfully though the flow throws an error “Bad request”?


It seems that there is a condition in your flow, how is it configured?


When using a Condition in a flow, you should add actions inside If yes or If now branch according to your needs. About how to add a condition in your flow, please check this doc for a reference:


Flows also fail if a setting in an action of the flow doesn't function as expected. In this case, the error message contains Bad request or Not found, or an error code of 400 or 404 appears. Please click or tap the Edit button and then correct the problem inside the flow definition. Please take this documentation for a reference:

Thank you for the reply and no. What I meant was that I could successfully create a new account but the unhelpful error came when I tried to create a new Opportunity. 

I have created another flow with just a New Opportunity but it gives me the same error:




I have double-checked the currency ID, the name and everything, but cannot find what would be giving me a 'Bad Request - Error in query syntax.'

I solved it. Turns out that Potential Customer type is a GUID rather than a name. Once that was set, everything worked as planned,

Hi mike, i'm looking into the same thing as in the post and wondered if you could assist. How did you go about retreiving the GUID for the name of the contact/account.



I retrieve the GUID by using another search query and retrieving the value from that.

Works perfectly thanks Mike.

Hi MikeRogers,


I've created a similar flow by using Microsoft Excel as the trigger. However, I'm trying to create a Business Opportunity in Dynamics with the information in Excel. But can't make it to work. I've posted a link to my flow below.
