Edit form from sharepoint list giving a path not value

So I have a sharepoint list and when i edit the form in powerapps it updates the list successfully but when i look at the form again on powerapps it shows as below. It should just say "Colette" but it seems to bringing some sort of path over with it? Am I doing something wrong? 

 

<div class="ExternalClassF977B78F55394839B787800F59FA4450">Colette</div>

Please review your column definition for the column in SharePoint.  You have it set for allowing Rich text.  When you have that, it will result in an HTML version of your text.  If you display that HTML in a plain text control in PowerApp, it will show you all the HTML tags.  If you display that in an HTML control in PowerApp, it will format correctly.

So, either remove the allow rich-text in the SharePoint column, or change your PowerApp control to be an HTML control. 

I hope this is helpful for you.
