Can't change SharePoint List column to blank.

NEVER MIND. Looks like formula level error management did work. It just took some time to kick in. 

Not sure how to delete a post here.  

 

I have a SharePoint Asset List for employee assets. When the employee leaves and the asset becomes available, I need to change the FULL NAME field to blank. Removing the name with the Power App doesn't take hold and the user's name remains. 

 

This FULL NAME field is a Lookup from another list of employees. The Asset list does allow for blank fields in all columns. I have a number of items in the list with blanks in the FULL NAME column. I came across this post which suggested enabling Formula-level error management. This didn't help my problem. I'm certain that I've been able to 'blank-out' the FULL NAME column before.

Are you changing it by setting the field to blank and submitting the form?  Or using some form of Patch?  Can you show us the formula being used.  Since its a lookup column I don't think you can just set it to Blank().  You need to use some record format.
