    Try this
    • Go to the Application designer
    • Export the System XML
    • Select LOOKUPS
    • Save somewhere
    • Open the file in a text editor, you should also have a backup of the file
    • Find and edit <table id="locations" inputmode="readonly" selectmode="single">
    • Add the following
    <tablecol dataattribute="parent" id="locations_lookup_tablebody_col_20" mxevent="selectrecord" mxevent_desc="Go To %1" sortable="true" type="link"/>
    <tablecol dataattribute="LOCATION_PARENT_SYS.description" id="locations_lookup_tablebody_col_21" mxevent="selectrecord" mxevent_desc="Go To %1" sortable="true" type="link"/>​

      • Return to the Application Designer
      • Import the file
      • Test

      This article should help.  You will need to edit the lookups.xml to define the columns you wish to be displayed in the Select Value dialog.
