Hi @Sajith ,


I did a test for you. 

1\ This is my list 'Approval Form'. 'Assigned To' is a lookup Column. Its related column is 'Assignee' column in LIST117.


2\ This is my list LIST117. 'Assignee' and 'department name head' are Text columns. 



3\ This is my list LIST118. 'department name head' and  'department name' are Text columns.



4\ Add a dropdown control 'Dropdown1' and set its Items property to:

AddColumns('Approval Form',"Test",ThisRecord.'Assigned To'.Value)



5\ Add a label control and set its Text property to:

Dropdown1.Selected.'Assigned To'.Value


Add a label control and set its Text property to:

LookUp(LIST117,Assignee=Dropdown1.Selected.'Assigned To'.Value).'department name head'


Add a label control and set its Text property to:

LookUp(LIST118,'department name head'=LookUp(LIST117,Assignee=Dropdown1.Selected.'Assigned To'.Value).'department name head').'department name'


6\ The result is as follows:



Best Regards,
If my post helps, then please consider Accept it as the solution to help others. Thanks.



Thanks a lot for your help. The control is not dropdown and it is data card (Combo box). 



How we can insert these label values in the list  onSelect of the Submit Button. Because  SubmitForm(FormName) will submit only data card values.
