Combining multiple Data Sources and then separating them to LookUp or search

Ok, so todays task. I am looking up Team Member certification. We can view the database by Team Member or by Process. We can then select the Team Member and see his Processes in the 2nd gallery OR we can select the process and see all of the Team Members that know it. Following? Hahaha


So, the next step is to take the details given in the 2nd gallery and search for the record in the database to view the completed certificate in a form. The problem: Everything in the galleries are a .Result as I used Distinct to get passed using 2 different databases.


My current theory is attempting to use Split in my search. Any thoughts? Maybe set a variable using split?

It sounds like you have a many to many relationship between process and members. With Dataverse you can use dot notation for the galleries items so you can avoid using distinct.

Good point, but we aren't able to use Dataverse databases as that is a premium. I managed to find a work around 😄 


The result string can be broken up using this code:

Set(varSelectedCert, Trim(Last(FirstN(Split(ThisItem.Result, ";"),2)).Result));


I do it in a variable to avoid delegation warnings.
