I've searched online but can't find a straighforward answer for this (and apologies as it's probably a pretty basic question!)
I'm using the CDS connector to work with Dynamics 365 data.
How do you display lookup field in a gallery when using the CDS?
When I was using the Dynamics 365 connector, I would use the following syntax to display a lookup to an Account but this doesn't work with the CDS connector:
What is the equivalent formula for the CDS connector?

Resolved this myself after playing around with the formula.
To display the lookup name in the gallery rather than the guid, use the following syntax:
ThisItem.'<Insert field Label of current entity>'.<Insert field label of entity being looked up to>'
In my instance I'm looking up to the Account entity from a custom entity where the field is called 'Site Name'
ThisItem.'Site Name'.'Account Name'
