Power Apps - Look up column not returning the correct column

Hello,

 

I am creating a timesheet app based on Dataverse and I have set up a look up column in my Timesheet table to obtain the sales order ID from another table. However it is not return the correct column. The column it should return is a text column. How can I fix this ?

 

Thanks !

Hi @Nina2021 ,

 

Lookup always return whatever value is in your Primary Name Column of the table, so if you have choose the sales order ID as primary column then you should expect that value.

Either you have to change the Text value column to Primary Name Column or you can create view form in your lookup table and embed that view form beside your lookup value.
