List lookup control in repeating section only saves item ID

Hi all. This is my first post - hope you don't mind if I start with a query. I am not really a developer, so apologies in advance if any of my terminology isn't quite right.

 

I have a repeating section in one of my Nintex forms. Within that repeating section is a list lookup control that pulls in values from a column in an external list. The external column is of the 'single line of text' type.

 

The lookup works just fine when I am inputting data into the form - the data from the external column is displayed in full exactly how I want.

 

However, when I save the form and check the XML output from the repeating section, I notice that only the item ID is saved - not the data from the column itself.

 

Here is an example of the XML I am getting:

 

<WPLookup type="System.String">4</WPLookup>

 

That number 4 is the item ID of the value I want to look up, not the value itself. The value of that field is a string "WP40 - Painting Pete". Any idea how I can get the string and not just the item ID?

 

All info gratefully received
