Hi Nintex Gurus,


Can we have two filters in one lookup function like filter on Title and Created columns in lookup function on Nintex Form


lookup("Test", "Created", Current Date "Title" )

lookup("Test", "Title", Title, "Title" )


can we combine above both filters in one lookup function.


Pseudo query will be return Title from a sharepoint list where Title is strSomeString and Created  is equal to Current Date.

it depends what you want to do with the result. Both lookup functions return text so you can combine it in a formula control:

lookup("Test", "Created", Current Date "Title" ) + lookup("Test", "Title", Title, "Title" )

will put both text values right after another. You can place a space in between by doing this:

lookup("Test", "Created", Current Date "Title" ) + " " + lookup("Test", "Title", Title, "Title" )

Is this helpful?

Best regards

You mean something like this?

lookup("Test", "Created", Current Date, lookup("Test", "Title", Title, "Title"))


Never tried it but it should work.

Hi Enrico,

I want to get Title if both created date = Current Date and Title = entered value

Is there an answer to this?   I am looking at a need for the same thing.

My workaround was to create a third column in LookupList.  A workflow fires on adds and edits so:

column3 = column1 + " | " + column2

In my case column1 and column2 were both text and I could be sure neither would ever contain a "|".

Then in the form, I had a lookup containing the values of column1 and a lookup containing the values for column2.  Then I had several calculation fields that return column4 & other columns in that list.  That calculation was like this:

lookup("LookupList","column3",trim(parseLookup(lookupColumn1)+" | "+parseLookup(lookupColumn2)),"column4")
