Lookup Fields in maker.powerapps

Hello!  I have a City and State fields that I need to autopopulate with values from a store table.  So I thought making the datatype to be a lookup field (many-to-one) would do the trick.  The table that I'd like to autopopulate is like a schedule table where there's a store field (also a lookup field to the store table).  But I'd also like to show the City and State fields from the store table in the schedule table.


How do I do this?

Hi @RonDinoso1 


What is the datasource? Do you want to create one look up field? In SP or in one entity?

If you want to create one lookup field in SP, you can choose look up column type.



If you want to build many-to-one relation in entity,you can reference this:

The datasources are CDS entities.  The screenshot below shows a scheduler form with a backend to an entity called Reset Schedule.  I'd like for the City/State fields in the scheduler entity to autopopulate once I input the store number.  The StoreNo field is a (Many-to-One) lookup to a Stores entity that is the source for city and state info.
