EditForm People field error multiple selection

Hello there, 


I have an SP list with the field named "Assigned" and set to "Allow Multiple Selection"

I have a EditForm and a Combo box named "DataCardValue17" and set to "Allow multiple Selection" to ON. 


My goal is to have multiple person can be selected and assigned and saved.


It was working before, but when i changed the setting to multiple selection the Save Button and the field starts having error. 

What did i do wrong? My dataform datacard is "Parent.Default" and my saved button is "SubmitForm(formNew); " but it has error too. 


Any help is much appreciated.

Might want to leave the Default property balnk and set the DefaultSelectedItems to Parent.Default

I did remove, but the saved button still having issues.

@echodapogi Can you show what the error form the save button says exactly, can see all your errors from the button highlighted in red

Sorry to miss your @ call!

Yes, your DefaultSelectedItems on the combobox should be Parent.Default and your Update property should be your Combobox.SelectedItems


Glad you got around it.
