I have a simple power app with browse and edit with Data source as CDS custom entity, everything works fine on the edit screen, but i can't find the field which is of look up type on the browse screen which has a gallery showing the list of records for the same entity.
Any thoughts on this please?

Hi @jk264 ,
Could you please share a bit more about the LookUp type filed in your Browse screen?
Do you mean that you could not find the LookUp field in your Edit form?
Do you add a LookUp filed in your CDS Entity or create a One-to-Many relationship in your CDS Entity?
If you added a LookUp field in your CDS Entity, then you could enable the LookUp filed within your Edit form via the following steps:
1. Select the Edit form, then click the "Edit fields" option within the right Properties tab
2. Click "Add field" option within the Pop-up Fileds panel
3. Find the LookUp filed within the available Fields list, then choose it, and click "Add" button
The GIF screenshot as below:
If you add a One-to-Many relationship within your CDS Entity, the LookUp filed would be existed in the Related Entity rather than your current Entity (Primary Entity). You could not enable the LookUp filed within the Edit form which connects to your Primary Entity.
In other words. if Entity A created a One-to-Many relationship to Entity B, the generated LookUp filed would be existed within Entity B rather than Entity A.
Please take a try with above solution, check if the issue is solved.

I can find the lookup type field on the edit form, but i have the same entity as the Data source for a gallery on another form where i can't find the Lookup type fields, i can see all other fields.
