I build a linq query to retreive data from three tables.I have created left outer join on the these tables as given below :

from c1 in crmFacade.GetQueryProvider().Linq<contact1>() 
join c2 in crmFacade.GetQueryProvider().Linq<contact2>()

on c1.contactid.Value equals c2.contactid.Value 

 into tempRenewal from renewal in tempRenewal.DefaultIfEmpty()

join c3 in crmFacade.GetQueryProvider().Linq<contact3>()
on c2.chapterid.Value equals c3.chapterid.Value
into tempChapter from chapter in tempChapter.DefaultIfEmpty()

c1.pa_webloginname == userName

select new



FullName = c1.labelname ==null ? string.Empty : c1.labelname,

 LastName =  c2.lastname == null ? string.Empty : c2.lastname  //Error is thrown due to this line.


 When I execute this query an exception is thrown saying "No value nodes found for Type contact3".

This error is thrown from "ConstructCrmObject(Type t)"  method in "LinqToCrm.CrmQueryProvider.ConstructCrmObject()" method.

How do I solve this issue?

Thanks in advance.

Please open an issue to the issue tracker and attach also the fetchxml you expect this query to produce so that we can easily write a test case for the issue.
