Hello,

not out of the box, no. The person/group field is by definition already a lookup field (to the SharePoint user list) and cannot be used as the source for a lookup column.

You would need to create a regular lookup to a text field and then manipulate the code. I have not tried this, but here is an approach that may work:

I don't understand the wording for the request for deletion.

Out of the box it can't be done. That is a valid answer.

OK, back to your original question

>> Is there any way to lookup col z which is "person or group" type.

Answer: No, that cannot be done.

Even if you don't like the answer or it does not solve your issue, it is a valid answer and deserves to be closed properly.
