Hi @WarrenBelz,
thanks for the input, but it seems to be not working. I want to have the dropdown by default to be empty. 

@NamM_ ,

It should be blank with those settings - you really should not have to do this, but make the Items 

Ungroup(
   Table(
      {
         Item: 
         Table(
            {Value: Blank()}
         )
      },
      {
         Item: 
         Choices('AD Daten'.Mitarbeiterkategorie)
      }
   ),
   "Item"
)

and also clear the Default.

Sorry for the late reply, haven't been in the office. 
So, after saving and reopening the app as itself it worked perfectly with "AllowEmptySelection". 

Thanks for your help @WarrenBelz 🙂
