Customising the displayed value of a Combo Box

I have a Combo Box for a Choice column, but I'd like to change the labels to be a bit more informative.

 

I've attempted to use the value of the choice column to lookup another table, but I get [object Object] instead, which isn't the intended behaviour.

Ideally, my labels would be "Value" & First(Filter(...)) & Last(Filter(...))

 

So for example, I'd like the entry of the dropdown for CAN/US to show "CAN/US 0-18", or split across 2 fields if necessary (which I've been trying in the screenshot)

 

If necessary I could set up another table to hold label information.

You are on the right path with First but unfortunately you can't do this directly in the property you are using.  You'll have to AddColumns to the the table in the items property instead.
