Question regarding related records

Question asked by Ian Hunter on Mar 10, 2014
I'm working with the v4_1 SOAP API from C#.  I can log in, retrieve records, create records, and update records, but when it comes to related records, it seems I'm missing something.

It appears that an easy way to set a relationship, say to link a contact to an account, is to simply set the contact's account_id to the id of the account in question. I've done that successfully and saved it by calling set_entry.

Here's the part that doesn't make sense to me -- why, if the above is true, can't I query for contacts linked to a certain account by checking for contact.account_id being equal to my  account id?

I get that I can do it with get_relationships, but for something this simple, it seems like I must be missing something.
