In previous a post i posted how to default a value on a lookup field in 4.0. Here is the solution for CRM 2011
function priceList()
{
//Create an array to set as the DataValue for the lookup control.
var lookupData = new Array();
//Create an Object add to the array.
var lookupItem= new Object();
//Set the id, typename, and name properties to the object.
lookupItem.id = ‘{27457CD-3C7C-E011-8E52-1CC1DE7983EB%257d}’;
lookupItem.typename = ‘pricelevel’;
lookupItem.name = ‘test’;
// Add the object to the array.
lookupData[0] = lookupItem;
// Set the value of the lookup field to the value of the array.
Xrm.Page.getAttribute(“pricelevelid”).setValue(lookupData);
}

In my example i am getting the pricelist “test” and defaulting it in the pricelist field on the Opportunity entity. Below is the template you can use to utilize the code for a different look up and values.
function priceList()
{
//Create an array to set as the DataValue for the lookup control.
var lookupData = new Array();
//Create an Object add to the array.
var lookupItem= new Object();
//Set the id, typename, and name properties to the object.
lookupItem.id = ‘{Fields Guid}’;
lookupItem.typename = ‘Entity Name’;
lookupItem.name = Lookup Value;
// Add the object to the array.
lookupData[0] = lookupItem;
// Set the value of the lookup field to the value of the array.
Xrm.Page.getAttribute(“FieldName”).setValue(lookupData);

}

Enjoy!!
