Fill combo box with calculated value from another field



I've tried several ways to do this without any success.   

We have 2 office locations in the same city and in the GAD, they are differentiated by City (one is Istanbul and the other is Ataturk).  However, For the user to select, they choose ACO for Istanbul or ITS for Ataturk.   This works fine when the user chooses manually (there are flows behind that I don't want to change, that determine the process based on this choice).


I did an If statement to populate a text. box so that when the employee is identified, the correct location for the flow is set.  However, I can't get this value to automatically fill the combo box.


I even tried changing the field type in sharepoint to be a text field but it still stays as a combo box on the form when I refresh the data!


Any ideas??

Remove the datasource from app and add it once again, and see if the field type is updated.

Thanks.  In the worst case I will do that (if I can't find a way to automatically populate the combo box)
