Datatable to show columns based on content type



I have hit an obstacle in my powerapp bulding and am wondering if anyone can help. I searched online for days but have come up short.


The idea: 

  1. I have all the emoloyees in one list (Employees)
  2. Each employee is assigned a content type, which determines the competeneices they are supposed to have (so Manager has Comp1, Comp 2, Comp3  IT has Comp2,Comp4 etc)
  3. In my powerapp I have a datatable which filters these competencies based on the name of the employee selected 


The datatable shows ALL columns, includes all the content types. I want it to show only the ocntent type selected for that employee. How could I manage this? And IF thereis a way to do it, how would I translate the table to HTML so it shows in PDF right?


Thank you!

A gallery will give you more flexibility than a datatable. Please post a screenshot pic of how you want your data to appear

Thank you for answering! @Drrickryp 


I also considered a gallery, but I donät know how to get data from a gallery into an HTML. I sthis something you could help me with?


The attached image shows what I managed to get to work right 🙂 I want the same table for competenecies where in the first column there would be the name of the competence and in the second column the level.
