Filter syntax not working for me

I am trying to run a filter for a data table:

Filter(HouseholdInteractionSurveyData, DoorAnswer = DoorAnswerDD.Selected.Value) ( .Result is not an option)
I am drawing off of a SP list, HouseholdInteractionSurveyData, that has a header, DoorAnswer.
I have a Dropdown called DoorAnswerDD.
I get a red underscore under the equal sign, "Invalid Argument Type."

DoorAnswer and DoorAnswerDD are both Control data types.
DoorAnswer was originally gathered via a dropdown

As I understand it, this shoudl work:
Filter(HouseholdInteractionSurveyData, DoorAnswer = DoorAnswerDD.Selected.Value)

or this, even:
Filter(HouseholdInteractionSurveyData, DoorAnswerDD.Selected.Value in "DoorAnswer")

however, I can't get either to work.

 

Your help is greatly appreciated.

You did not mention the type of Column that DoorAnswer is in your datasource.  If it is a Choice column, then give the following formula a go:

Filter(HouseholdInteractionSurveyData, 
     DoorAnswer.Value = DoorAnswerDD.Selected.Value
)

If still an issue, then respond back with the type of column you have for DoorAnswer in your datasource.

 

I hope this is helpful for you.

For the record, and the community, yes, the column data type in my SharePoint list was, in fact, Choice. 

Randy, you beautiful person, that got it working like a charm. Much thanks to you, sir.
