Distinct dropdown

I have a Sharepoint column (B) in a list (List2) referencing another column (A) in another list (List1). In List2 column B, I need it to show every distinct value of column A via dropdown menu for users to select from. So far using the distinct function I have just gotten errors.




It was a lookup field, but you asked me to change to a single line of text


Here are some screenshots


This is the original lookup field that is successfully pulling fields from the first list based on the value of the "Requested Permission Group" but it is not returning distinct values. 



Here's the new field that you asked me to build, it is a choice field. Have yet to input the actual field names.




I believe I was just missing the .Result in my previous code.  This will work if Column A is a single-line text type (not a Choices type).

Distinct('List 1', 'Column A').Result
