Showing result as dollar value

Hi,

 

I am trying to pull data from my PowerApp and export it onto an Excel table. I have the Flow set up and it works fine, but I need to use drop down menus to eliminate user error. When I try to complete the parameters of my "Insert Row in Excel" Flow it will not allow me to complete the formula. It says that the formula is expecting a text value instead of a control but the values in the drop down menu are text values. Is there any work-around for this?

 

Thank you!

It sounds like you're not referencing the correct property of the Dropdown control. To actually get the text value, you need to do:

Dropdown1.Selected.Value

 

 

Here's an example:

My first impression is to use Foods.Selected, but this is a record entry not a text value. It sounds like this is might be the problem you're experiencing.

 

Hope this helps!

Hi Prf15,

 

According to your scenario, I created a flow looks like below:

Then on the app, add a Drop down control and set its Items property as: ["test1","test2","test3"]
Then add a Button, set its Action>OnSelect property as: insertrow.Run(Dropdown5.Selected.Value)
Then when I click the button, the value selected in the Drop down control will be saved to the Excel table.

 

Please have a try with it and let us know if it works for you.

 

Best regards,
