Please HELP: Auto select value in a drop down baswed on a value in a label

Hey PowerUsers,

I am currently having a label which holds an ID. I also have a drop down called A which is linked to a lookup field in a Sharepoint list which holds values for the IDs. All I want to do is auto select the ID value in the drop down based on the ID value in the label. So if the label value is 003, I want 003 to be automatically selected in the drop down. Values in the label are always there in the drop down.

Thanks guys

Hi @sufiyan_akhtar ,

Do you want to filter items based on a look up column?

If so, try this formula:  (set the drop down's Default)

LookUp(listname, lookup column name.Value=Label1.Text)

Please replace the listname, lookup columname with your actual information.


Best regards,

Hi @sufiyan_akhtar 


Can you try to update your formula as:
Lookup(LMS_Table,Employee_ID.value = Value(EmployeeID))
Hope this Helps!
