Once the form is submitted the information in ComboBox becomes cleared.  Therefore no data is being passed to your Flow.  However, you can access data from the last successful form submission using the LASTSUBMIT property.  Instead of the ComboBox1 you will need to reference fieldname though.

 

For example: let's say ComboBox1 submits information to the applicant field.  To retrieve the applicant displayname and pass it to the flow you should change your RUN code to this.  Note: applicant appears to be lowercase so I did not capitalize the fieldname

 

'DB-LeaveApplication2'.Run(Form1.LastSubmit.applicant.DisplayName)

Hi @samsam 

When you want to take actions after a form has been Submitted you should put those actions into the Form's "OnSuccess" Property. Then these actions will only happen if the Submit was successful, as you don't want to navigate away if there are validation errors on your form.

 

As @mdevaney says, you should use the FormName.LastSubmit.FieldName construct to get the data to pass to your Flow.

 

@mdevaney Thank you,  Form1.LastSubmit.applicant works perfectly 🙂
