Further Filters Selections in a Combo Box who's source is PowerBIIntegration.Data

I'm trying to filter what can be selected in a combo box whose source is a PowerBIIntegration.Data.  I've been successful in bring in the Power BI Column of Machine Code and break it down to just Distinct values.  I am unsuccessful in doing that and applying a filter from the Powerapps Page (Department_1) to the Power BI column (Dept) to filter the distinct values for a Combo Box source.

Original Successful Items: Distinct(PowerBIIntegration.Data,'Machine Code')

Version I'm working on Items: Filter(Distinct(PowerBIIntegration.Data,'Machine Code'),Department_1.Text in PowerBIIntegration.Data.Dept)

I appreciate any help anyone can give.

I think all you need to do is filter the data first then use the distinct.

 

Example: 

Distinct(Filter(PowerBIIntegration.Data, Department_1.Text in Data.Dept),'Machine Code')

Hi @PaulBI 

 

Distinct always returns a collection with only 1 column called Result

 

Distinct(PowerBIIntegration.Data,'Machine Code')

will return a collection with column Result that will contain all your distinct machine codes

 

You will need to update your query accrodingly
