Auto-populate multi-selection combo box with lookup values

I am trying to create an autofill form where when we provide the Request ID and set the toggle button to true, it auto-populates the value of the controls with Share point list item values.

 

This works fine with most controls if I use the following formula for Default or DefaultSelectedItems.

 

If(Toggle_AutoFill.Value = true && Textbox_ID.Text <> "",
LookUp(Sort(DataSource,Modified,Descending),
'Request ID'= Textbox_ID.Text).'Access Types'
,Parent.Default)

 

But now I have a multi-selection combo box with a list box where I display the selected items. The form is submitted by concatenating all selected values into a string.

Left(Concat(ComboBoxScope.SelectedItems,Value & ";"),Len(Concat(ComboBoxScope.SelectedItems,Value & ";"))-1)

Now, I am unable to autopopulate this combo-box by splitting the default value by ; while performing lookup to identify the match with request ID.

 

Thanks.

Since you are dealing now with multiple selections, consider the following change to your DefaultSelectedItems property:

Filter(DataSource,
       'Request ID' in Split(Parent.Default, ";")
).'Access Types'

 

I hope this is helpful for you.

Thanks for the response @RandyHayes 

It worked with the following formula in defaultselecteditems to split text and auto-fill combo box with Access Type corresponding to matching Request Id.

If(Toggle_AutoFill.Value = true && Textbox_ID.Text <> "",
RenameColumns(Split(LookUp(Sort(DataSource,Modified,Descending),'Request ID'= Textbox_ID.Text).'Access Scope',";"),"Result","Value")
,[Parent.Default])
