Search & Filter for Lookup Columns

Hello, I am trying to add a search and filter box in a gallery screen (standalone app, not a form). The data is being pulled from a SharePoint list called Construction Analyst Workload Management, and the records I need are in Lookup columns. The column names in SharePoint are called AMAP and FHANumber_x003a_Property_x0020, respectively. However, as shown in the second screenshot, the columns are listed as FHANumber and FHANumber:Property Name. Can someone please help me add this search tool? Thank you.

To get your 'real' column names, click on the column then scroll to the far right (Edit: of their URL) to find their real name ... although, it appears you have done this already?


Secondly, the Search() function isn't delegatable to SharePoint so your code will get a delegation warning, once you get it working. You can use StartsWith() and Filter() as an alternative if your list has more than 2000 items. Watch this video to get an understanding of what I'm talking about - if need be?


Thirdly, have you tried using "FHANumber_x003a_Property_x0020".Value as your reference column? This may work, not sure because I tend to avoid LookUp column use in PowerApps because they are very problematic.
