Re: lookup to a list on a different page / site ?

Jump to solution

I recently updated Nintex and have experienced this problem with a List lookup. It display the value in the form, but saves the ID to the list, even if you've connected the Text to your column.

I've raised a support call for it. I don't recall it being an issue before.

What version are you running?

Same here. Think it's a new bug.

So after you updated Nintex to 4.3.011 the value changed to ID ??
What have you done to change the ID back to the value then??!

Yes, instead of the value being stored in the list column, the ID is.

I haven't yet done a workaround for it, but I imagine using a lookup function will resolve the issue if you're just selecting a single item. Unfortunately, I'm selecting multiple items so the lookup runtime function won't sort this for me. I may have to workflow the solution unfortunately.

Hi Lakshminarayana,

 

I am trying to do the same thing but I am facing issue even though I tried your suggested solution. 

Can you please help me with this?

Here is my scenario: 

So, I have one list in the different site and the list contains different fields such as PositionTitle, PositionNumber, Branch. 

I have different list in the different site and I want to auto-populate PositionTitle and Branch when user enter PositionNumber. 

 

For this I am writing the lookup function like this: 

lookup("/sites/Master/Lists|PositionList", "PositionNumber", PositionNumber, "PositionTitle")

 

I tried your version as well.

lookup("/Master|PositionList", "PositionNumber", PositionNumber, "PositionTitle")

lookup("/Master/Lists|PositionList", "PositionNumber", PositionNumber, "PositionTitle")

 

When I preview this it say "Loading..." and just disappeared nothing else displayed. 

I tired using parseLookup(PositionNumber) but didn't worked.
