Dependent Drop Down Selections in Form - Multiple Data Sources

I have a form that has a drop down to select the user's department and a combo box to select the various email groups that user is a part of. When the form is submitted, the data is saved to a sharepoint list. 

The email group list is extremely long and I would love to be able to filter these groups based on the selected department. I created a second Sharepoint list with Departments and Email Groups and changed the Items property for the combo box in the form to: Distinct(Filter('Distribution Lists', Department = drpDepartment.Selected.Value), Title) and it worked great. The correct distribution lists displayed based on the selected department. However, these values did not write back to Sharepoint. 

Is there a way to get these to write back to Sharepoint OR is there a way to filter the drop down content without the use of a second list?

Hi @modernoddity 

 

Could you please change your formula expression as this:

LookUp('Distribution Lists',Department=drpDepartment.Selected.Value ).Title

 

For example :

Hi @modernoddity 

Check to make sure the Update property of the datacard containing the controls is referencing the proper control and that the syntax is correct.
