Add contents of SharePoint dropdown list to Powerapp dropdown



I'm a total noob so apologies but I've been searching for hours so it's time to ask a stupid question.


I have a SharePoint list call Accounts and and Column within called Cities. You can chose from 20 cities but I only have 3 entries so far...Liverpool, Manchester and Chester. I've added a drop-down to my PowerApp but for the life of me I can get it to populate with the 3 cities. Any ideas? Many thanks in advance

Thanks. I tried Accounts.Cities. The code now has an exclamation mark, the Cities part has a double blue line underneath and the following warning appears.  "Warning: the columns produced  by this rule are all nested tables and or records, however the property expects at least some columns of simple values (such as text, or numbers)


Plus the drop down is blank in preview 


Any ideas?

Hi @Tez 


Can you try to update the expression to:




In the advanced tab on the right side, you can select which column to display. There is a dropdown named Value.



Hope this Helps!

I just realised that this solution shows every choice available in the Sharepoint column so it lists every City in the uk. Can I make it only shows the chosen values so far I.e. Liverpool, Manchester, Chester
