Collect data from two datasources - for all and lookup - how do i solve this?

I need help to figure out how to create a collection based on two different datasources.

 

1. I have a collection in my app called colSelectedCustomers

It have two columns, NAME and CUSTOMER_ID

 

2. Then i have a large datasource (dataverse table) containing contact information to all customers.

So in dataverse there is a relationship between the customer table and the contact informaiton table. But in my app i am currently just working with a small collection.

 

Now i want to create a new collection called colSelectedContactInfo

 

How can i write a code that looks at each row in colSelectedCostumers and gets the row from the table with costumer contact info?

 

For All rows in colSelectedCostumers do a LookUp for each CostmersID in the table with costumers contact info and fetch the row that have the same ID and add it to the collection colSelectedContactInfo

 

I cant figure out how to write this code?

Hi @Oskarkuus ,

You would need to reference each field like this

ClearCollect(
   colSelectedContactInfo,
   AddColumns(
      colSelectedCustomers.
      "ReferenceFieldName1"
      LookUp(
         CustomerContactTable,
         YourCustomerIDField = CUSTOMER_ID
      ).YourRequiredField1
   )
)
