Dropdown and Combo box

I have created an App, where I have 2 combo boxes & 1 drop down. The choices for those boxes are coming from a table in excel. I am trying to figure out a way to save the selected values to a sharepoint list that I have. 

I created a choice column in my sharepoint list for each combo box and drop down box, but I keep getting an error message. For the drop down I have the column in my share point list called GLCode, I am not sure where I am going wrong in my formula.

 

Here is the formula I have: 

 

Patch(Rental,Defaults(Rental),{Title:"New",EqType:Title2.Text,'Duration ':DurationText.Text,GLCode: Dropdown2.Selected.Value})

Since your column in SharePoint is a choice column it is expecting a record to be patch and not just the text value. I haven't tried this using Excel as my dropdown list in PowerApps but here is a quick change you can test. Just remove the ".Value" from "Dropdown2.Selected", so it is passing the record instead of the value.

 

Patch(Rental,Defaults(Rental),{Title:"New",EqType:Title2.Text,'Duration ':DurationText.Text,GLCode: Dropdown2.Selected})

No luck with that. I get an error saying:

"Invalid argument type. Expecting a Record value, but of a different schema."
