Getting data from a [very] large SharePoint list into a PowerApps form

I am attempting to modernize some complex Infopath forms that have data connections to other huge SharePoint lists (150+ columns), and keep running into roadblock after roadblock.

 

The latest one I am trying to hurdle is the limit of 12 lookup columns in SharePoint when trying to bind data to some drop-down combo boxes. In a PA forum I found that the only way to duplicate this is by using Flow/PowerAutomate, and did find this one article describing the process. It seems surprisingly complex for just retrieving column data to bind to a drop-down.

 

Has anyone found an alternate method? If there are none, has anyone been successful in getting the method described in that article to work?

Hi @Daryl_K,

 

I see this feature is currently under review and as seeing how many users have voted it I am sure we will soon see it implemented.

Please keep an eye on that thread.

 

Thank you,

Hi @Daryl_K,

 

What is the error that you are receiving with the drop down input when binding it to the SP list?

Is it related with this thread?

Yes. Same error!

The solution linked in that article is the same I am looking at. In and of itself it seems needlessly complex.

I see there was a vote for a "real" fix but no word if MS is doing anything and/or when.
