Facet values for look-up field returning ID and Name

Apr 10, 2008 at 4:24 PM
First, love this feature! Thanks for making it!

Some of the content types I have created include a look-up field named "Client" which gets its values from another list on the site. I added a property mapping for this and got it to appear as a facet. It works fine except for the fact that each of our clients are showing up twice as facets, one is the name of the client (which is what I want), the other is the ID of the value in the lookup (integer).

It looks something like this:

Client Name A (2)
3 (2)
Client Name B (5)
12 (5)
23 (7)
34 (1)
Client Name C (3)

Any thoughts? I'm hoping it's just a mistake on my part. :-)

Hi, I have the same problem. I don't even have the names though. Just the IDs. Brent, did you figure that out?
So the general question is: Can facet search be used with look up fields?
