Issues - Pull Data From Table whose Source Is a Collection



I hope you will be able to help me with this one, I am having issues pulling data from a data table whose source is a collection.


I have a collection setup called "addSoftware" that contains a series of ID#s and a set of numbers called "Pressure Options"


I am successfully pulling this collection into a data table and performing some computations on the data using AddColumns.  However, I am unable to use the LookUp command to pull a single value out of the table, even though I can pull data directly from the collection using LookUp.  The forum is not allowing me to post screenshots just yet, so I have put some code snippets below.   Any ideas?


This code pulls successfully from the collection and adds a few columns to a new table called "DataTable2"


AddColumns(addSoftware,"multiplied",Pressure_x0020_Options*5, "prev ID", If(ID=1,0,ID-1))

This code pulls a value successfully from the collection



This code fails to pull data from "DataTable2" - regardless of whether it is a calculated column or not.  I have tried something similar on data tables that aren't pulling directly from a collection and am having a similar issue. 




Cheers and have a good weekend,

Hi @Anonymous,


Can you please share the collection here? Seems to me that this should work as expected.

Hey, sorry on the late reply to this.  I cannot share the collection because it is proprietary data.


But - good news it magically started working after the latest update, who knows.
