Items on DataTable with SortByColumns/Filter/AddColumns seems to be the culprit why I cannot open a selected record?

I have a Screen with a datatable and for the Items for my datatable I have the following:


'Pending Procurement Receipts',
'Email Sent'.Value
(IsBlank(SearchTextBox.Text) ||
StartsWith('PR #',SearchTextBox.Text) ||
StartsWith('Req. Office', SearchTextBox.Text) ||
StartsWith('Title (Title0)', SearchTextBox.Text) ||
StartsWith('Vendor Name', SearchTextBox.Text) ||
StartsWith('Receipt Status', SearchTextBox.Text) ||
StartsWith('Order Contact', SearchTextBox.Text) ||
StartsWith('Receipt Status', SearchTextBox.Text) ||
StartsWith(Response, SearchTextBox.Text) ||
StartsWith(Status.Value, SearchTextBox.Text)
) &&
(drpdwnOrderType.Selected.Result = "All" ||
'Order Type' = drpdwnOrderType.Selected.Result


(drpdwnOrderStatus.Selected.Value = "All" ||
Status.Value = drpdwnOrderStatus.Selected.Value


(drpdwnEmailSent.Selected.Value = "All" ||
'Email Sent'.Value = drpdwnEmailSent.Selected.Value






Everythings works fine when I perform a search, when I perform a sort on all of my columns, in addition, my 3 dropdowns filtering works perfectly as well. But when I select a specific record that in turn should display a FormDetails then that doesn't work.


First, for the Action OnSelect for my column PR # I have the following:


Set(SelectedRecord,DataTable1.Selected.'PR #');EditForm(FormDetails);Navigate(FormDetails,ScreenTransition.None)


For Item on FormDetails I have this:


But it is complaining with the following: Expected a Value compatible with 'DataSource'.


However, when I go back to Items for my DataTable1 and I change it just to 'Pending Procurement Receipts', then when I select record and click on the column PR # the FormDetails opens and is displaying the information as expected. I really have no idea why this doesn't work as expected. Any tips are most welcome.

okay this works:


LookUp('Pending Procurement Receipts','PR #'=DataTable1.Selected.'PR #')

For the Item property of the form, use Lookup('Pending Procurement Receipts', ID=Datatable1.Selected.ID)

The reason that Datatable1.Selected does not work is that you have reshaped the original table by adding a column to it so it is no longer identical to the original datasource table and to avoid ambiguity, you will need to be more specific in identifying the correct record. 

okay this works:


LookUp('Pending Procurement Receipts','PR #'=DataTable1.Selected.'PR #')
