Rename field before doing lookup

Thank you for taking the time to read my question.

 

I have this formula in the OnShapeSelected of a map.

 

Notify(LookUp(MapData,ID = Map1.Shapes_SelectedItems.ID).Name,NotificationType.Information)

 

The "=" has a red underline. I THINK this is because the field in my SharePoint list (ID) is the same as the field in the Map. 

I can't remember how to give ID a different name before doing the lookup... can anyone remind me?

 

Thanks

The reason for the red underline is that the types are not compatible.  You are trying to compare a numeric column (ID) with a table of records with an ID column (from your Map1 control) - SelectedItems is a table.

Try changing your SelecteItems to Selected.

 

I hope this is helpful for you.
