  • 1.  A number is pulling into a field I want text

    Posted 05-24-2022 18:45

    I am pulling the information via a relationship from one table to another.  However,

    This is the field I am having issues on

    the number is constantly showing up as a number.  It is the Proxy Reference too.

    What am I doing wrong?  I have encountered this before and have always been able to fix it.  Not today!

    Can you give us a screenshot of the relationship where that is being pulled in?

    There is something messed up about that field. It is a numeric lookup field. I suggest you delete it and look it up again on the relationship.

    Mark,

    I have deleted it a few times.  It continues to show up as a numeric lookup.  Any thoughts?

    The only explanation is that you must have a misnamed field on the Parent record. You must be pulling down the wrong field. 


    Check the field name that holds the Title.

    I did!  Once you helped me correct the numeric issue I traced it back to having the "company" field as the value field.  THANK YOU SO MUCH!

    Ok, you won the battle in the end!  Next time won't be so hard for you to fix.
