Dropdown of a Collection is not showing values.

Hi Everyone!

 

I have a SharePoint list that is populating my PowerApp. I have various collections that I then have in dropdowns that I use to filter a gallery. I have two collections that are almost identical, one is working perfectly fine (Status), however the other isn't working (IT). If you physically click on the different options it works, but I can't get the text to show up! Yes, I made sure the text wasn't just white on a white background. Nothing!

 

Here is the problem child first (colIT) and then the one that is working fine (colStatus). My screenshots are showing
-the Item function of the dropbox
-how the collection is working and showing all of the values
-what it looks like when I click on the drop down

 

TIA!!!

Consider changing your formula to the following:

ClearCollect(colStatus, {Value:"All"});
Collect(colStatus, Choices(Procurement_Analytics_Needs.'Current Status'));

And the same for the colIT - change the "Result" to "Value" 

Choices returns a table of "Value" columns, not "Result".

 

I hope this is helpful for you.

Thanks for posting this, I'm quite new to PowerApps and was stumped  as to why I was getting a blank dropdown list.  Regards Garry
