Lookup on complex type

Just beginning building canvas app for first time and struggling with how to do a 'Lookup' on a related entity in CRM.

I have the GUID of the valude I want to lookup on however the below Lookup doesn't seem to work?

Trying to response value back only from particular record that has a matching "Related Enitty" id?


LookUp(Responses,"Related Entity"=Param("RelatedEntityId")).Response

Try something like this:

LookUp(Responses,"Related Entity".ID = GUID of the related entity that you want to lookup on)

ID is the column name in which the GUID of the related entity is stored.

This example is just for illustration.

Let me know if this helps.

If you like this reply, please give kudos. And if this solves your problem, please accept this reply as the solution. Thanks!

thanks, had to end up converting to GUID like this...

LookUp(Responses,'Related Entity'.id=GUID(Param("RelatedEntityId"))).Response

Is your problem solved now?

Yes, thanks.
