Once the lookup function finds the matching row, it will store all the values under the corresponding header name as custom variables.

 

When you add a Lookup action, an index is automatically generated. This index is essential for mapping the row data to the custom variables and allows for easy identification of multiple lookup values. Removing or editing the index once it is added is impossible.

The values obtained from the lookup action for a particular row can be used in all other activities within your workflows, just like any other contact fields or custom variables.

Please Note:

You can use {{sheet.x.rowNumber}} to get the row number of the lookup value.
