Symptoms

When you edit multiple records in the Edit Multiple Records window in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0, the fields that have the OnChange event enabled are unavailable. This problem occurs if you have installed Update Rollup 1 for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0.

Cause

This problem occurs because Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 disables fields that have the OnChange event enabled in the Edit Multiple Records window. The program disables these fields to prevent the OnChange event from causing errors.
