Hi @MuzaffarMahmood 

 

For the data card which contains the combo box check and see if the defautl property is set to comboxbox.selected.value

assuming your SP column is a text field

 

If your sharepoint column is other data type

then set default  value accordingly

Re: Combo Box selected value is not saving on form submission in SharePoint list.

Hi @MuzaffarMahmood ,

Could you tell me the field's data type that you want to use this combo box to update?

If it is a choice column, please clarify whether it is multiple choice.

1)If it is a text type, please set the field data card's Update: 

Concat(combo box name.SelectedItems,Result&",")

2)If it is a single choice, pleae set the field data card's Update: 

{Value:combo box name.SelectedItems.Result}

3)If it is a multiple choice, pleae set the field data card's Update: 

RenameColumns(combo box name.SelectedItems,"Result","Value")

Please replace combo box name with the name that you use.

 

To sum up, different data type need different formulas to update.

Here's a doc about how to update complex data type of sharepoint list in powerapps for your reference:

It is solved. Actually i had choice column in SP and in powerapps i was giving it some other items that were not matching with SP choice options. I changed it to lookup column in SP now.

 

Thanks
