CDS Lookup is not displaying data in collection of powerapps

I am facing a issue to bind the lookup column in the collection. In collection, It is giving me an error "The data is unsupported for..."

Is there any way to get the data of lookup column into collection?

Hi @DimpiSheth15,


Can you show a screenshot of the formula you are using to set the collection?

I am having same issue when using CDS and i did following code:

ClearCollect(CollectionA,Filter('ABC','ABC (Views)'.'AbcView',TypeId < 2000)),
ClearCollect(CollectionB,Filter('ABC','ABC (Views)'.'AbcView',TypeId >= 2000 And TypeId < 4000)),
ClearCollect(CollectionC,Filter('ABC','ABC (Views)'.'AbcView',TypeId >= 4000 And TypeId < 6000))


I am getting data for all columns except LOOKUP columns.

I am getting error for LOOKUP columns which is "This datatype is unsupported for evaluation"

Hi @sheetalbhatt, in your expression, what is TypeId a lookup?

Yes, TypeId is a lookup column.

Thanks for clarifying. The filter then seems wrong on TypeId lookup column/field. You'll need to select (with intellisense) the amount column from the lookup to filter on the desired amount. Ex:

ClearCollect(CollectionA, Filter('ABC', 'ABC (Views)'.'AbcView', TypeId.AmountColumn < 2000))
