Re: Lookup field Issue in PowerApps(Comman Data Services)

I have the same issue. Is there any other way to show the correct field (a workaround?)?

hi @cholopa,

first select the Datacard, then change the Default property to something like this formula:

 

LookUp(emleado_de_cliente_, PrimaryId=ThisItem.emleado_de_cliente_.PrimaryId)      

............... just make sure the names in the formula represent your entities!

 

then select datacardvalue...

 

then in the side bar you can select value1 and all options will be available

please let me know if this solves your problem.

Mohammad

Do I have to change the default property here?:

Another issue I see, is that in your image i see you have a lot of values to select:

I can only choose between two values:

Even though I have 3 selected in  defaultlookup -group fileds entiti:

hi @cholopa,

yes... change the default property from the mark i.e.: remove (Thisitem.Peticionario_) and put the following formula:

 

lookup(Peticionario, PrimaryId=Thisitem.Peticionario_.PrimaryId)

then you will notice that it will bring you all fields in 'Peticionario' entity, which you can choose anything from it.

 

regards,

Mohammad

Re: Lookup field Issue in PowerApps(Comman Data Services)

Hi @mokhawaja

 

Thanks for the support.

 

Sadly it doesn't work (notice here we use ";" instead of "," for separting the arguments of the formula):

Have double check that the arguments are correct (picked the ones the application allows me to..)

 

What can be the issue?

Re: Lookup field Issue in PowerApps(Comman Data Services)

 

lookup(Peticionario; PrimaryId=Thisitem.Peticionario_.PrimaryId)

@cholopa... copy and paste the above formula.

 

notice that before the last "PrimaryId" should be a dot "." not ";"

Re: Lookup field Issue in PowerApps(Comman Data Services)

Thanks @mokhawaja:

 

Now is working fine, I understand better now what is doing...

 

There is one more think I would like you to help me... thanks a lot in advance!!!

 

I have a database with three entities

 

1- Customer (Peticionario)

2- Company (Empresa)

3- Work order (Orden de trabajo)

 

The flow is like this:

A customer that works at a company asks for a work order

 

So the relations are as follows:

There is a look up relation between customer and company (as the customer works in the company . A lot of customers can work in a company, but a customer can work only in one company )

There is a look up relation between work order and customer (as the work order is request by the customer. A lot of work orders can be made by a customer, but a work order is done only by one customer))

 

Going back to the issue, ideally, when selecting the person that has made the work order, I would also like to see of course the customer.name, but also the company.name (that way is much more fast to find and make sure that I select the correct person.

 

So when a new work order is registered, ideally I would like to view the customer.name property in the value 1 field and the customer.company.name property, in the value 2 field

 

With your help I've been able select the correct property, but as value1 and value 2 fields that I want are from different entities (though they are indeed related) I think is not posible to do what I want, is it?
