Using lookup formula in the open, *outside* of table

I have embedded a dropdown select in a dedicated section (outside of any tables) that looks up items from one of my tables in another section.

Beneath this embedded dropdown, I’d like to display related information from the table, filtered by whatever item is selected in the dropdown.

Seems so simple, but I can’t figure it out. If anyone can help, I’d be super grateful :pray: Video and Coda doc embedded below.

Hi @Ashley_Creighton,

Can you try - [Client Dropdown].Value.Notes and see if that is what you are looking for?

It is not an easy one to find!

I’ve come across .Value a few times now – it’s a bit confusing. Might be a good one for your list (or a similar type of list). :point_down:
