Some sort of code when copying field values


First of all, in my opinion this is the best implementation of this feature. Thanks for that!!
However, I have found some issues:
  • The connected fields cannot be used on calculated fields (at least they do not appear in the list of fields to add from)
  • They only work on text files, thus we have to copy the value of any other field type to another field, a text field (additional data on the list, additional workflow to make the copy)
  • and, the most important to me, I can't use these fields into compare operations because its content appears to have some sort of code in it.
    For instance, If I get the value and store it on the workflow history, I see something like this: 31;#Virtualización , making it impossible to use to compare anything. This is a real value from one of my workflows, just getting and storing the value. No other action.
    Is there any way to get ride of the 31#; ?
    Would it be to much asking to correct this?
    Again, thanks a lot for spending your time on doing things like this!!
    Best regards.

These issues are by design. I don't think it's impossible to extend Connected Lookup to work around those. I would have hard time scoping this effort though. In any case, such extension is not on immediate todo list, sorry.

Too bad...
Anyway, what's the idea behind putting that code together with the selected value?
