Conditional Formatting with Lookup and string comparison

I'm trying to change the color of an icon based on whether or not another related record exists.

 

My app has Suppliers and Supplier Quality Documents. A Supplier Quality Document name is based on the Supplier Number and Type of Document, the format being "(SupplierNumber) - (type of document), ie SUPP-0022 - ISO9001. DataCardValue23 is the supplier number; DataCardKey64 is the type of document. My formula is below, I've confirmed the LookUp function is correctly pulling the record and returning the name by printing it out to a label. Not sure why my If statement is always providing false though.


If(
    LookUp('Supplier Quality Documents',

    (DataCardValue23.Text & " - " & DataCardKey64.Text) in Name, Name)

in (DataCardValue23.Text & " - " & DataCardKey64.Text),
Green, Red
)

I don't really understand the [@DataSource] syntax but it is working
