Providing code might help isolate your problem – Eric Alexander Feb 4 '14 at 18:28

For a lookup column you must provide the ID of the item you are referring to.

Thus if the item being lookup has an ID of 3 you must provide that in the hashtable, with lookups to multiple items you must provide the ID and the value separeted by ;# e.g.: 1;#First Item;#3;#THirdItem.
