    There might be some misunderstanding. IF your line item 'Find Item' is a text line item, it can be used in the FINDITEM function to find items in your list. Maybe give it a try once and check


  • Hi,

    Did you try FINDITEM? It would take your first list name as parameter 1 and then the text against which you want to find as parameter 2. So if you list is named 'Terr' the formula would be FINDITEM('Terr', Find Item), Find item being the line item in your ss

    You can use lookup for that, List.property[lookup: list].


  • @ManjunathKN @ankit_cheeni  FINDITEM will look for ITEM by using ITEM but I need to search ITEM by using CODE.

    LOOKUP accepts dimension (i.e. ITEM rather CODE) to look for a value.. So, both can't be used.. Correct me if am missing anything here

  • @ankit_cheeni  I might missing the essence a bit.... FINDITEM is the one which can solve the ask.. but just to mention FINDITEM should have List Type datatype rather TEXT



  • @CommunityMember126793 

    you brought up a list property using FINDITEM?

  • @CommunityMember126793 

    ABC, EFG is a list not a list property. 

    1st point it is mentioned as list but your 4th point you mentioned ABC, EFG as list property.

    List item can be brought by Finditem
    List property can be brought by Lookup.
