Hi @EMohaisen 


Excel files work the same as any other data source. The only difference is that you're loading your Excel table into your Power Apps. Once you did that, the handling is the same.


So, to create a lookup and auto-fill your country/state/city based on your Purchase Orderyou can add something like this to the Default property of your fields:

LookUp(<your Excel table>, 'Purchase Order' = PurchaseOrderTextbox.Text).Country


I hope this helps.
