Copy single line of text value to a lookup column

Jump to solution

Hey all,

I have a list with a Single Line of Text Column which is automatically filled by a workflow. There are about 6 different possibilities (ProjectA, ProjectB, ..., ProjectF).

In order to use this in further steps I need this values in a lookup column to use them in a cascading dropdown control in my Nintex form.

Does anybody know how to copy the value of my single line of text column to the lookup column?

Thanks in advance

Best regards

Hi Axel,

I think you'll have to set a variable (typed as Integer) with the ID of the item which has your value as "Title", then set the lookup column with this variable.

do you look for solution in forms or workflow?

is it one time action to convert text into lookup or should it be some permanent solution?

wouldn't it be a solution for you to replace existing text field with lookup one and let workflow directly populate it?
