Workflow Setting Lookup Field


Posted by djhobbes - Jun 14 ’16 at 05:57

I am using a 2013 workflow in SP online to parse a filename and set multiple fields, one of which is a lookup field tied to a list elsewhere in the site collection (using cross site lookup).


For discussion, I am trying to se the [Title] field to a numeric variable I parse from the filename.  The problem is, instead of returning the correct item by [Title] it is using the numeric variable to return the matching [ID] field from the list.


Any thoughts?

    I suppose, you're retrieving an item by CAML-query, right? If so, please, read the following thread illustrating how to request items either by Title or by Lookup Id:

    A reaction paper is a type of written assignment, which requires personal opinion and conclusions on a given article or abstract. Unlike a summary, a reaction paper should contain your own thoughts on the problem, discussed in the original text for reaction paper assignments
