SharePoint LookUp field is not available to add to Power Apps form

I have a couple SharePoint lookup fields that are set to 'Required'.    If I am customizing the form for the SharePoint list I get an error that the fields are incompatible.    It works if I set Required to No.

 

Any solutions for this?

I think I figured it out.  For some reason if I set the column to required it will not be available to add to a Form in Power Apps.   Once I set it back to not required it is then available.

Hi @JR-BejeweledOne ,

 

Could you provide more information such as any screnshot to show the error?

In addition, have you changed the data type of this column before?

If so,  this may cause some problems.

 

Best Regards,

Customized SharePoint list form.   In the Edit fields selection.   If I set the lookup column to required, the column is not available for use in the Form.   If I set it back to not required, I can then add it.
