I am running this query.

select id, name, Community_Partner__c, Community_Partner__r.Name from Engagements__c where id = 'a005e000003wKuwAAE'

and the results returned show that the lookup field community partner is empty. Yet when I go to the record page there are 4 community partners.

Am I missing something? If I do the same thing in the sandbox the results are showing but not in production.

Data model : Engagement has a lookup field called community partners. The schema is attached.

You are checking incorrect information with SOQL. I don't know your data model, but Engagements__c.Community_Partner__c seems like a main partner or something like this.

To get info you need either select id, name FROM Community_Partner__c where Engagements__c = 'a005e000003wKuwAAE', or select id, name, (SELECT Id, Name FROM Community_Partners__r) from Engagements__c where id = 'a005e000003wKuwAAE'.

You need to select all Community Partners that are related to Engagement, not a single Community Partner that is specified on the record.


after seeing the schema I would suggest following query to discover what you have on the org.

SELECT Id, Name, Engagement__c, Engagement__r.Name
FROM Community_Partner__c
