Control the values in a drop down box by filtering a sharepoint choice colum

I have a SharePoint list  which is connected to my App. This list can be added to at any point. What I want to be able to do is have a single drop down box on the app which shows the values in the check column (this column is a calculated based on input in other fields in this list).


That part is straight forward - what I need to be able to do it have it so that the values in the drop down, will only ever show where the choice column lives value is Yes. Unfortunately I wont be able to change this from a choice field.


In the below example I would want to see value 1, value 2, and -- displayed but not value three.





I have tried filtering with if statements and multiple filters, but I cannot seem to get it to work. Im guessing the issue I am having is because im trying to use a choice field to do the filtering?

Create a combobox and in the combobox set this values to "Check"




Where I have "Nome", you write "Check"


After that, assuming that Live is a true or false, in itens write this:


Filter( SP_List_Name; Live = true)
