I have a sharepoint list with 4 columns (text-based)
If I create an app based on this connection, no errors have been made and column names have been mapped correctly.
If I use the datasource for a dropdown the mapping screws up!
This is not too bothering for me but I feel like I have to report this.
Thanks for reporting.
Could you please share som details about how you work with the items and the Dropdown?
For Dropdown in PowerApps, check:
Basically I use the same connection that I made in the powerapps web portal.
When generating the app based on the connection no issues arise. I provide the same site to the sharepoint team for both methods.
Image 1 is a screenshot of the app generated correctly. Image 2 is of the faulty mapping.
On my sharepoint list, "Flow Rate" is actually a value of the 'Measure' Column.
Whereas The Symbol column holds values such as m³/s, l/s ...
Thanks for the feedback.
So the formula you are working on is under items property of a dropdown?
The expression itself won't automatically matching to the proper value, so if you would like to filter based on the Measure column, then please modify the formula as below:
Filter(UnitsOfMeasure, Measure = "Flow Rate")
If I have any misunderstandings, please let me know.
That is the exact problem. It should be like that but it seems like column values are mapped to another key. Measure would give back the symbol and symbol would give back the measure.
