Rather than doing a bunch of LookUp's in AddColumns is there a way to add all columns from one LookUp?

Basically the title, I am wanting to pull in all columns from a datasource using one lookup via the AddColumns command. Currently I have each and every column added, but as an individual lookup. Feels.... inefficient.

Sorry about that.  We type these things by hand on the forum and its very easy to miss a comma, paren or something in the formulas.

@RandyHayes No worries, this whole situation led me to understand in more detail how you had everything formulated out.


I didn't realize As "_item" is just something you made up to make identification easier so things don't become "ambiguous". It also took me awhile to realize your using the Patch command in this scenario to merge records. Basically I always learn a lot from your replies. You'll be happy to know I no longer am using SelectedText.Value but rather Selected.Result 🙂
