I have a lookup field that does not show up in the Define Workflow Lookup.

I can see it in InfoPath form but it is not showing up in the drop down in Sharepoint Designer to create a workflow.

I was planning to use this field as one of the conditions in the workflow.enter image description here See below screenshot:

  • sorry its not a calculated field but instead a lookup field – Pradeep Kumar Jan 5 '17 at 1:33

You need to set the value of the field to a workflow variable first and then use it in your condition.

  • Yeah thats what im planning to do. But then i cant even see the list column in the current item dropdown... – Pradeep Kumar Jan 5 '17 at 16:50
  • it seems to happen on lookup fields only...I tried in SP 2007 version and it works. I wonder what's causing it not to show. – Pradeep Kumar Jan 5 '17 at 18:56
  • Which version of Designer are you using? – Col.Cook Jan 6 '17 at 1:12
  • SPD 2013 with Sharepoint Online – Pradeep Kumar Jan 6 '17 at 5:02
  • Check its not a hidden column in the content type or list, my Lookup columns are all available in SPD2013 using SPOnline – Col.Cook Jan 9 '17 at 4:05
