From multiple text selection to text field in sharepoint

Hey, just starting with power apps and I have an issue I'd appreciate help with.

 

I have a multiple selection combobox: ["A", "B", "C", ... ] as an example.

 

On sharepoint I have this column as a Multiline text. I wish to get all the selected items from this combobox, concatenate them with a ", " as separator, and save that on my sharepoint table as a simple string.

 

I tried changing the "update" function on my form field to "Concatenate('field', ", ")" but no luck. The error I always get is the "Object needs to implement IConvertible" and I assume it's because the data I'm sending to my sharepoint is not casteable to "multiline text".

 

Any ideas please?

 

Thanks

"There is an error in the formula", any idea why?

 

Concat(DataCardValue22.SelectedItems.'Name (Title)', 'Name (Title)', ", ")

Thanks for the pictures. Your data type in your sharepoint is single line of text, right?

Done. Thanks pal!
