Combining Data into Single Field

I currently have a Gallery (background below), that populates another 'pre-view' Gallery. The User can select a number from the Dropdown, which populates information in the background (hidden fields), some of which appear in the preview. The User can choose as many Questions as necessary. These are saved in a Collection. The preview Gallery is based on the Collection.





My desire is to have the 'Question No.' and 'Comments' provided be collected and appears on a single line in the SP list, rather than multiple lines. The top example below is a example of the SP list. Both times, where multiple questions were chosen only the 'last' chosen is shown in the Question No. column.


The preference is to have all the Questions No.s chosen appear comma delimited. Likewise any comments written should appear together in the same field comma delineated. - as demonstrated in the lower example (I made in Paint).






@Re: Combining Data into Single Field

Hi @3csman ,


If I understand this correctly, you should be able to accomplish this by using a Choice column in SharePoint with the Checkboxes display choice setting. This will allow multiple selections that will be comma separated in the field.

Re: @Re: Combining Data into Single Field

Meaning, if the inspection form has 83 questions I'll need to load numbers 1 - 83 in the 'Question No' (choices formatted) column on the SharePoint side?


Assuming the above is 'Yes', is this alternative doable - create an input field that allows for repeated entries on the Power Apps screen?


Meaning, the User manually enters the question number into a Text input field of some type, and clicks a button that stores that data in a Collection and resets the field and the User chooses another number, and so on.


Ultimately, these numbers wind up in a comma delimited field in the 'Question No.' column in the line item for the action in SP?
