Choice Fields not showing as an option

Last week the choice fields I have in SharePoint displayed and worked wonderful filtering my cascading dropdown boxes. This week, the choice fields previously used, are not showing in Powerapps as an option to select. What changed that caused choice fields not to show up?

Thank you for responding. We have a cascading filters on multiple downdrowns. One of which is a choice field in SharePoint. We figured it out yesterday an it seems to be working for now. Our syntax to show state was, Distinct(Filter(Licenses,'Company Name'=Dropdown_Company.Selected.Result),State). This was working until last week. We have since changed the syntax to Distinct(Filter(Licenses,'Company Name'=Dropdown_Company.Selected.Result),State.value) and it seems to be working now. The second problem we were having is that the choice field didn't show up as a field to add to a gallery. That is also working now. Cascading filter.png

Hi @sdaniel ,

Could you please share a bit more about your issue?

Do you mean that the Choice field in your SP list could not be displayed as options to select in your app?

 

I have made a test on my side, and don't have the issue that you mentioned. Please check if you or other users (who have edit permission to your SP list) converted the Choice type column in your SP list into another column type, e.g. Single line of text column.

In addition, please consider take a try to re-create a new connection to your SP list from your app, then check if the issue is solved.

 

Also please consider take a try to re-generate an app based on your SP list, then check if the Choice type column could be displayed well within the Edit form of your app.
