Dropdown issue based on another field

Hi,

I am currently building an app and stuck on a dropdown issue.
I am trying to change the dropbox option Load Compliant based on a text value.

 

So i am calculating each question to give me a number of either 1 or 2 on a text field. If(DataCardValue28.Value=true,"1","2")

Then i am summing all of the texts fields to give me a total score:  Sum(Label9,Label10)

That all works fine. 

The issue is the dropdown changing, based on the number. I have tried using running a if statement based on the sum total=<20,"Yes","No) but that does not work. I just want the dropdown to change to yes if the sum is <20 and no if it is >20.

Cheers

Hi @gman91,

Could you please share a bit more about the error message within your Load Compliant Drop box?

Further, could you please share more details about the formula within the Items property of the Load Compliant Drop box?

Based on the screenshot that you provided, I think your Load Compliant Drop box is a Combo Box control rather than a Dropdown control.

I think there is something wrong with the formula that you mentioned, I have made a test on my side, please take a try with the following workaround:1.JPG

Set the Items property of the Load Compliant Combo Box to following:

["Yes", "No"]

Set the DefaultSelectedItems property of the Load Compliant Combo Box to following:

If(
    Value(Label1.Text)<20, 
    {
        Value: "Yes"
    }, 
    {
        Value: "No"
    }
)

On your side, you should type:

If(
    Value(Label1.Text) < 20, 
    {
        Value: "Yes"
    }, 
    {
        Value: "No"
    }
)

Or

If(
    Value(Label1.Text) < 20, 
    LookUp('DataSource', DisplayColumn = "Yes"), 
    LookUp('DataSource', DisplayColumn = "No")
)

Note: The DataSource represents the data source formula you typed within the Items property of the Load Compliant Combo Box control. The DisplayColumn represents the column you used as a Display value within the Load Compliant Combo Box.
