SharePoint Tip of the day : Proper CAML Query with Lookup Field


Based on the value :

<Where>
<Eq>
<FieldRef Name=”Country” />
<Value Type=”Lookup”>Belgium</Value>
</Eq>
</Where>

But whenever possible, try to search based on the lookup ID :

<Where>
<Eq>
<FieldRef Name=”Country” LookupId=”TRUE” />
<Value Type=”Lookup”>10</Value>
</Eq>
</Where>
