Need help on getting Account Name of an account from an Opportunity in Canvas app

Hi Power Apps Community,

 

My issue is that I could not get the value of Account Name field of Account entity in my canvas app.

 

As I know that Power Apps does not allow to get value of a field from an related entity.

 

So I tried the following ways to get Account name from an opportunity (ModelDrivenFormIntegration refers to Opportunity entity)

1. LookUp(Accounts, accountid = [@ModelDrivenFormIntegration].Item.Account, 'Account Name')

2. LookUp(Accounts, Account = [@ModelDrivenFormIntegration].Item.Account, 'Account Name')

3. First(Filter(Accounts, accountid = [@ModelDrivenFormIntegration].Item.Account)).'Account Name'

4. First(Filter(Accounts, Account = [@ModelDrivenFormIntegration].Item.Account)).'Account Name'

 

The result is always empty

All Opportunities in Sales application have an related account

I was also wondering if LookUp function works properly, so i made a following small test, and Account Name shown up.

So I guess the root cause lied in the condition of LookUp or Filter function but I don't know how to fix it.

 

Look forward to your solution / advice.

 

Many thanks,

Nhan

Hi @kiendao911990 :

Could you tell me what the relationship is between opportunity and Account? N:1? Or 1:N ? Or N;N?

Firstly, let me explain why the result is always empty.

The point is the ModelDrivenFormIntegration control does not provide a value for fields of a related entity.

So the result of  [@ModelDrivenFormIntegration].Item.Account is an empty table.

Finally, Ive made some test for your reference:

I assume the relationship between opportunity and Account is N;1.

 

LookUp(Opportunities,Opportunity=[@ModelDrivenFormIntegration].Item.Opportunity).Account.'Account Name'

 

 

The point is going back to your data source(Opportunity) to find the specified record to refer to the value of the relevant entity.

I think this link will help you a lot:

Known issues and limitations with embedded canvas apps

Best Regards,

Bof
