Bug Report: Sharepoint Lookup Columns not working anymore

Dear PowerApps Team,


I've spent the last two weeks re-configuring my Apps to use Lookup Columns in Sharepoint Online lists, and with the rollout of the latest version ( Version 2.0.702) of PowerApps. I'm now unable to use Lookup Columns, I first noticed this when Galleries dosplaying Sharepoint Document libraries stopped working, now I notice that the problem is more widespread and that Lookup columns are not working in any shape or form.


As a lookup Column shows up as a "Record" and you have to use "." to get to the specific value, as of now, you're unable to expand the Column to show the specific value.


The momment you add the "." after the Column name you get the red squiggly lines and an error message "invalid name".


A quick resolution would be most appreciated.

Any further information on this? I reported this issue hours ago and no response? Can you please give us a time frame as to when this issue will get resolved? 


How are we supposed to build Apps using PowerApps if basic stuff like this breaks, and then there's no response? Surely there's more than one person on the PowerApps "Team".

I managed to find a PC that still has version 2.0.690 of PowerApps and I can confirm, that Sharepoint Lookup Columns work in version 2.0.690.


But that is now "broken" in version 2.0.702. So it's definitely an issue with PowerApps version 2.0.702


For now I'm paralyzed with developing further my Apps, until this issue is resolved.


Please give us an estimated time of resolution.

I have the same issue after latest update of PowerApps. My clients have many apps where Sharepoint Lookup Columns are used. From today all these apps simply do not work. Microsoft PowerApps Teem often forget to coordinate their product with Sharepoint

I'm having the same issue.   Is there any update on this bug?!


@Mark1I was informed by @mayuro that they have identified the issue, and are working on a fix.


@mayuroany updates as to when this will get resolved?

Thanks for letting me know! 


I posted about this same issue on Friday (first topic ever), and I can't find it now (guessing it was removed).   Luckily I found your post. 



We have already started the roll out to hotfix. Hopining by EOD today/ early tomorrow

@mayurothat is good news. Thanks for the update.

@mayuro and PowerApps Team. Thank you very much for getting this working again. I just tested it, and I'm very grateful to report that it's now working.
