Choice fields data types in are set to Check-box format is not returning values.


Followed this approch to create the flow

Hi @Jean_9681,


The issue you met is the value of choice won't show up in the drop-down, right?

I tested it but not find the same issue.Annotation 2019-09-12 103527.png

Please confirm the type of column is choice, if it still not work, you can reopen or recreate the Flow.

Or you can Enter custom value instead.
