Data Not appearing in Form after selected

I have a form with drop downs in it.  Once selected, the form is sent to another person to sign off on.  Some drop downs are showing what was selected while others are not.

Check the Default properties of the controls that are not showing data and make sure that they are correct.  If Parent.Default doesn't work then set them to the actual column names like ThisItem.Conclusion, etc and see if they populate.  As a last resort, delete the cards that are not working and add them back in again.

Few areas to look at:

What are the codes on the items property,

Does the AllowEmptySelection property of the dropdown set to false?

If the dropdown is on a different screen, are you using a variable?

The items property is set to the items that are options to choose in the dropdown...just like the first yellow circled item.

Yes AllowEmptySelection is set to false.

No variable. 

Basically I just want whatever is selected on the first screen to be visible on the second to the person who is signing off.

The data is being written to the sharepoint list successfully....just not appearing in the fields properly.  The defaults are set according to what you listed.

I had to go in and flip something around on the default to get it to recognize it but it's working now!  Thank yoU!!
