Always submits FIRST item in dropdown



I have an issue with a dropdown always submitting the FIRST item in the dropdown even though it populates with the correct code.... the code for the dropdown references a list for populating it.  It is


Distinct(Filter('SP List', Site = Datacardvalue4.selected.value),Description).


Here are some screenshots which shows in the form what is selected vs the list it references.  when the form is submitted, it always submits the first one in the dropdown even though the description box populates with the selection.   I selected "Serious Injuries" and when i clicked the submit button, it submitted the "Forecast Expense"..... What am i doing wrong here?  What do i need to change in my code?





Reference List




If you put the original formula you had in the Update, does the problem go away?  Making sure that something else hasn't been changed.  Does it mention which column is required that is not being supplied?
