Created a form with cascading dropdown. Saves no problem to Sharepoint, but are blank when opening the entry through the form.

Hi. I built a PowerApps simple form connected to a Sharepoint list with cascading dropdown function. When entering info into the app, it records no problem to my sharepoint list. when i open the entry back up in powerapps, the entries are blank (even though they are saved in Sharepoint).

Hi @cchan000 ,

Your issue on both is the Default 

dd_market_1 should be 

ThisItem.Market

dd_dma_1 should be

ThisItem.DMA

Hi @cchan000 ,

What are the Items of the Combo Box and the DefaultSelectedItems. Also what type of field are you writing back to, and what are the names of this field and the Combo Box?

Hi! They are dropdown boxes. I have a couple so I'll list them. Here is what the contents are. they don't have a defaultselecteditems. Default dropdown says "1".

 

i have attached a few more screenshots that may help.

 

for MARKET

ITEMS = Sort(Distinct(WCC_Info,Title),Result)

 

for DMA

ITEMS = Filter(WCC_Info, DMA = dd_dma_1.Selected.Result)

 

 

@cchan000 ,

I was assuming combo boxes - what is the Default of both of these and also the Update on both Data Cards. Could you also give me the names of the controls (I see one is dd_Market_1) and the names and types of fields you are writing back to (as asked previously).

Thanks for getting back to me.

 

Market (control name = dd_market_1)
default = "1"

Update (on the card) = dd_market_1.Selected.Result

writing to sharepoint field Market and type is Single Line of text

 

DMA (control name = dd_dma_1)

default = "1"

Update (on the card) = dd_dma_1.Selected.Result

writing to sharepoint field DMA type is Single Line of Text

Hi @cchan000 ,

Your issue on both is the Default 

dd_market_1 should be 

ThisItem.Market

dd_dma_1 should be

ThisItem.DMA
