Drop down list not populated when navigated to Edit the second time

I have an auto-generated list-detail application with a Sharepoint list behind. And there is a field with a drop-down list of values.

When I edit a record for the first time the list has all my 4 values. When I click 'x' (cancel) i the top-left corner and click Edit again the list contain just one value, the current one maybe. Ease to recreate, I guess. The is also another text field which is not populated at all at that time, just left empty. I would say - not a very complicated / rare use case 😉

Hi @Anonymous,


Thanks for the feedback.

I think editing the same record a second time won't affect the value showed under the EditForm control.

Would you please share more details about the column field under SharePoint List that the dropdown works with?

For some known issues, please check:

Connect to SharePoint from PowerApps

Refer to the "Known issues" part.
