Error: Table could not be updated: entitymap With Id Does Not Exist

Doing some configurations on a Microsoft Dynamics 365 CRM environment and received this error while trying to add a NEW Lookup column (previously called field) to a just created NEW custom table (previously called entity) in a Model Driven App:

The table could not be updated: entitymap With Id = xxxxx Does Not Exist.

I was using the Microsoft Power Apps Designer to setup the new table and new columns. I had created an UN-managed Solution that contains the new table and then published the Solution. Then I proceeded to create a new Lookup column and clicked Done. So far so good.

However, when I tried to clicked on the “Save Table” – I received the “The table could not be updated: entitymap With Id = xxxxx Does Not Exist.” error.

Note: new text or date format columns were created OK – no error after clicking “Save Table”

Tried clicking the “Save Table” a few times within a few minutes – still same error.

Searching the internet yield no good ideas. I speculated that because the new custom table was just created – the new table’s meta data has not yet propagated to all the Microsoft’s cloud data locations that the new lookup column creation process is dependent on.

Waited another 10 minutes and tried again. This time worked OK! No support ticket needed.

If someone else encounters this error in the future – resolution may be just to wait a few minutes and try again.
