Re: Cannot get record's value if using "search"

Hi @samsam 

To diagnose this, I'd add a data table and set the Items property to your Search formula. Do you see any results?

I think the most likely cause is that the Search function works only with text fields.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/functions/function-filter-lookup

I notice the field you're filtering on is called 'ML Reference Number'. If this is a numeric column, that's a possible reason why the Search function doesn't seach against this column and return the results that you expect.

Hi Timl, 

 

Thanks for suggesting me to use data table. 

It clearly shows the record does not exist. That's why the output is blank

 

Thanks for the help
