Set Global Variable to Specific Record

App OnStart must be set to to make a variable out of a record from Sharepoint.


If the Variable is called HouseChoice, and you wanted the record with "Choose A House" in the Title column, what should Set() be like?

Hi @Sacred_Totems ,


Filter returns a table, LookUp returns a record.

Please try this:

Set(HouseChoice,LookUp('SP list',Title="Choose A House"))


Set(HouseChoice,LookUp('House list',Title="Choose"))
