Updating Look up Column Sharepoint



I have updated a Lookup column on Sharepoint from Powerapps using the following formula on Update:-


Value:DataCardValue60.Selected.'Parent Host'}


But if you go to change the look up column in the app it keeps defaulting back to the pervious value and not letting me Save the form.....any ideas why it is doing that?

Not an expert on this, but I'm thinking you need to reference the current value as default. I believe your formula updates correctly, but the default is referencing either the previous or standard default value.


In a standard form Default property, this would appear as Parent.Default for the field and reference the Default value in the DataCard. Alternately, you might be able to directly reference ThisItem.{fieldname} as the default.
