Dropdown list expecting text value - this formula uses scope, which is not presently supported for evaluation

Hi Community,

 

I have a column named Expense Type in SharePoint list that uses a Dropdown (Choice Type).

At a report summary screen, I use ThisItem.'Expense Type' to bring out the value selected. However I get error "This formula uses scope, which is not presently supported for evaluation". It seems that the formula is expecting a text value.

Kindly advise how I can overcome this. Thank you.

Hi @elleeyl ,

 

First of all, please make sure that it is single-choice column. Then use the formula @yashag2255  suggested in your label control.
