Need help with search box input field entry

So, I have an search box as an input field in a form, and I’ve checked the box “Allow entries not in list when typing”.

The problem is with database entry for that form, that search box’s typed text as the input, it doesn’t register the lookup as input, and leaves the field blank.

But if I put the results of the lookup as the input, then it doesn’t register any input if the user types something that isn’t there.

Both work perfectly on their own, but I want them combined into one data entry. Am I going to have to create two conditions in the workflow, one if the input is already on the list, and the other if they have a new one? It seems like there must be a simpler way…
