Hi Matt,
Thanks to this tutorial I just patched to a lookup column for the first time! Next, I’m wondering if it is possible to collect to a lookup column when collecting a whole collection to a datasource (eg. Collect(Datasource, Collection)
Is it possible?

Hi Matt
Thank you for this invaluable resource that helped and developed my knowledge.

I’m stuck when it comes to merging two collections, from two Sharepoint lists that contain students’ test results. It’s about how I handle columns with the same name. The key is upn, but then there are also the students’ names, school and class.
Dropcolumns, showcolumns?

Hi, is there a way to change the First Published Date for News?
We are transferring lots of News to a new Sharepoint and we want them to have the correct Publish date but this not editable.

Thanks

“PATCH A SharePoint Image Column” seems incomplete or just does not work. Do you have any pointers or further explanation on that solution?

Ho do I patch a lookup column to my sharepoint list. Not the lookup’d column itself. I have a main SPList with lookup columns. I populated dropdowns with the secondary lists (because I can’t sort lookup column directly). Now I want to patch my selected choice (from the secondary list) into my main list, but this gives an error since the data types don’t match.
