Display additional column in a lookup dropdown RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Is there a way to display an additional or a different column in a lookup dropdown.

    Eg:Instead of ID, I want to display Description or like "ID : Description". But the actual value to be saved should only be "ID".

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi  Anshuwa

    a workaround

    in the source list create a calculated column which will store the value as you need

    Next in the secondary/destination list add this column as a lookup column
