How to Use Choice Field in Lookup Columns in SharePoint?

Problem: Could not create lookup columns on Choice field in SharePoint list!


Not all column types are supported in the lookup column. Supported column types are:

  • Single line of text, 
  • Number,
  • Date and Time, 
  • Calculated (Single Line of text), 
  • External Data

So, what’s the trick? Well, in the parent lookup list, create a new calculated column from the choice field in the list, and you can use that choice field in lookup fields on any other list!
