Display Value from collection in table

I just need to display the value(s) of a column in a collection in a data table.  I get the following. Annotation 2021-04-05 143255.png

 

The table is set to the name of the collection and I have added the field "SelectedReason".  I have also tried to say ThisItem.SelectedReason.Value and get an error about the formula using scope which is not supported.  All I need to accomplish is list any Reasons from the collection.  I check the collection from the Edit app and it is fine as shown here.

Hi @guyinkalamazoo ,

You will need to use a Gallery here with ThisItem.SelectedReason.Value (not a Data Table)

Hi @guyinkalamazoo :

Firstly,let me explain why you encountered this problem:

The point is that the value of ThisItem.SelectedReason or ThisItem.SelectedReason.Value is a table but each cell in the data table can only display one value(Does not support displaying table or record).

Finally, my suggestion is to convert the table into a string to display.Please try:

 

Concat(ThisItem.SelectedReason,Value&";")
