Dropdown Box Value for Lookup formula...

Hi,

 

I have a simple App with; 1x Data Source (pricelist), 2x Dropdown Boxes (for Product ID & Currency) and a number of labels.

 

The Data Source is an excel file which represents a Price List:

Effectively what I want to achieve is to select the Product ID from a dropdown box and return the lookup value of "Desc" in one of the Labels and then select the required Currency and have the associated currency lookup value in another Label ajacent to the Description.

 

So...the formulas are as follows:

 

Dropdown1 (Product ID) - Items = ["111","222","333","444"]

Dropdown2 (Currency) - Items = ["EUR","GBP","USD"]

 

Label5(Description) - Text = LookUp(pricelist,ID=Value(Dropdown1.Selected.Value),Desc)

 

          This works as expected If Dropdown1="111" then this successfully returns "Product 1"

 

Label6(Price) - Text = LookUp(pricelist,ID=Value(Dropdown1.Selected.Value),EUR)

 

          This works as expected If Dropdown1="111" then this successfully returns the EUR ammount "25"

 

HOWEVER...I would like to use Dropdown2 to choose the Currency; I have tried the following:

 

Label6(Price) - Text = LookUp(pricelist,ID=Value(Dropdown1.Selected.Value),Dropdown2.Selected.Value)

 

          This does not work as expected If Dropdown1="111" AND Dropdown2="EUR" then this returns "EUR" in Label6

 

Label6(Price) - Text = LookUp(pricelist,ID=Value(Dropdown1.Selected.Value),Value(Dropdown2.Selected.Value))

 

          This also does not work as expected If Dropdown1="111" AND Dropdown2="EUR" then this returns no value in Label6

 

I have included a copy of the App at the following location:

I am sure I am just missing something simple...but cannot figure it out!!!

 

Thanks,

 

David

Hi @DH,

 

See lookup function syntax here:

LookUpTableFormula [, ReductionFormula ] )

 

ReductionFormula is evaluated over the record that was found, and then reduces the record to a single value. You need to reference columns within the table. But you are using the data from a dropbox not the "Table". This is why the formula won't work.
