Change type of Form Column

I need help to change form column from single text to be Drop Down but the data is from gallery.

But when I add column drop down Data is different when I created.
Please see my picture for better explain.

I want to explain, this happen when data is input on SharePoint, but when data input from Power Apps  is not problem, why this happen?



For selection drop down is link to other SharePoint List, because of that I'm using split command






because the problem is when I input data from SharePoint it will be problem, but if input data form PowerApps it not Problem.

There is solution for my problem?

@Lucas_Ignatius Looks like you first have to store the value in a collection and then use that in your dropdown based on selected item in gallery 


you can use IsSelected to check the selected it. Let me know if you give it a try. 

Hi @vermaaman 

I was tried but there is no formula with IsSelected, can you help me more detail how to input "IsSelected"




There is any solution for this case?

because it happen when data input on SharePoint, but if input on Power Apps is okay.
