I have a SharePoint site and I would like to be able to create a list of which one column will be linked to a customer account.

I have seen products that sync data between CRM 2011 and SharePoint (not really what I want as the CRM will be the single data source), and I have also seen some pretty heavy code in the form of plugins.

I thought this would be a common requirement but cannot find anything solid on google - I have read about BCS, self developed plugins with Visual Studio and paid for commercial plugins, but I am not sure where to start.

Also some code example how to use lookup field:

BusinessEntityCollection becEntityColl = null;                 

if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(_testId))
    becEntityColl = CRM.QueryEntity(service, EntityName.account, new string[] { "new_ownid" }, new string[] { _testId });

    if (becEntityColl != null && becEntityColl.BusinessEntities != null && becEntityColl.BusinessEntities.Length > 0)
        account acc = (account)becEntityColl.BusinessEntities[0];
        Lookup luField= new Lookup();
        luField.Value = new Guid(acc.accountid.Value.ToString()); = acc.new_name;
        crmBusinessEntities.mpc_vakuuttaja = luField;
