Hi,

I would like to display a more info text box if a selected value in a combo box is equal to "Other" but right now it isn't working, see graphic below:

Hi it is Dynamics.

 

FYI I got this working like this:

ComboBox1.Selected.Value = 'WashOptions (Opportunities)'.Other
 
Thanks!

Hi @Mattw112IG ,

What are the Items of the Combo Box?

Choices('WashOptions (Opportunities)')

Thanks @Mattw112IG ,

Very strange - all you actually should need on the Visible is

ComboBox1.Selected.Value = "Other"

but this will not work if your formula does not.

What type of field is 'WashOptions (Opportunities)' in the data source (I assume SharePoint)?

Thanks @Mattw112IG ,

So when you type in ComboBox1.Selected. (after second dot), what valid results do you see underneath?
