Problems with Dropdown/ LookUp

Hey together,

 

I have a Problem.

 

I have a SharePoint list from which I fill a DropDown field.

The dropdown takes its data from the SharePoint title column (text field), now I want to show the description (another text field in the SharePoint list) in a text field next to the dropdown.

Unfortunately, I always get an error with this form:

 

 

 

 

LookUp(StockCategories1stDigit,Title=drpDPTSCategoryClass.Selected.Title,StockCategories1stDigit.Description)

 

 

 


Do you have any idea what I am doing wrong?

Many greetings

Kai

Depending on the Items property of your Dropdown, you might not need to do any further lookup as it might already be part of the selected record in the dropdown.

 

But, that aside, please consider changing your Formula to the following:

LookUp(StockCategories1stDigit, Title=drpDPTSCategoryClass.Selected.Title, Description)

 

I hope this is helpful for you.
