Problem With LookUp on SP List

Hi everyone,

I have a SP List called 'Cat Man' with 3 columns: "Titre","Pilote","Mail".

I'm trying to create a Patch Fonction using a Lookup Fonction that get the value from a combobox selected item. But I have issues with it. The function that I use: 

LookUp('Cat Man'; ComboBox4.Selected.'Nom du groupe mis a jour'='Cat Man'.Title; 'Cat Man'.Mail)

 

But it doesn't show anything.

And this function:

LookUp('Cat Man'.Mail; ComboBox4.Selected.'Nom du groupe mis a jour'='Cat Man'.Title)


I get an error saying that I can't compare a Text and Table.

Does anyone as an idea to make it work.

Thanks by advance.

@Slowpoke 

Yes, you are asking the Lookup to compare a table to a text string - 'Cat Man'.Title is a table!

This will not be valid. 

 

Please consider changing your Formula to the following:

LookUp('Cat Man'.Mail; 
    Title = ComboBox4.Selected.'Nom du groupe mis a jour'
)

 

This will return the first record that matches the criteria.

 

I hope this is helpful for you.

Ok, I tried this, but then I get the error: you can't compare those types: Control and Text.

I tried other things but none of them seems, to work. I'm starting to think that what I'm trying to do is not possible.

What is the exact formula you have now that has the error?

The same one as you wrote above

So this one:

LookUp('Cat Man'.Mail; Title=ComboBox4.Selected.'Nom du groupe mis a jour')

@RandyHayes 

And also, when I create a Label with this formula:

 

Label3.Text = Text(Combobox4.Selected.'Nom du groupe mis a jour')

 

 

And I try to use this label in the Lookup, so with this formula:

 

LookUp('Cat Man'.Mail; Title=Label3)

 


I get the error: you can't compare control and control, but only with this symbol (and not the red cross):

@Slowpoke 

The last formula with the error is correct (that you have an error) Label3 is a control...not a value!  You can't compare that.

 

What is the Items property of your Combobox4 control?

And what kind of column is 'Nom du groupe mis a jour' in your list?

The items property of my combobox is:

 

PNL.'Nom du groupe mis a jour'



And 'Nom du groupe mis a jour' comes from another list called PNL, and it's a single string column with categories that look like this : "AA0000 - CATEGORIE NAME".

Ok I managed to make it work:

LookUp('Cat Man'; Title=ComboBox4.Selected.'Nom du groupe mis a jour').Mail
