Drop Down Not Loading All Items

I have a drop down on my Edit Form that is using a Distinct(Table, Field) for the Items of the dropdown.  The data source is SQL and there are 90 Distinct Items for what the field linked to the drop-down.  Is there a limit to how many items show up in a drop-down and if so is there any means of changing this limit?

I am not sure about a limit of the items in a drop down maybe some PA engineer can answer that but I am pretty sure it is higher than 90 items. However when you do:

 

Distinct(Table, Field)

It will only return distinct items from first 500 records. Could this be why you are not getting all the distinct values?

I think this is why it is happening then! Thank you I didn't realize this would happen when using Distinct in PowerApps.

Hi

Is there a workaround or solution with the 500 item distinct maximum?

Thanks

Hi has anyone been able to solve this issue? @Thami  @dhofknecht 

This is a delegation issue. Please see the following link for more details.

The article talks about a setting in PowerApps studio that allows you to change the amount of records that can be processed locally, but it will have an effect on the performance of your app.

Thank you. 

 

What worked for me was deleting any duplicated items in my Excel Table. 

 

It works fine now.
