Insert into SP list from ComboBox(multiselect) and Dropdown without repetitions

Hi friends. I'm starting and motivated with powerapps few days ago Smiley Very Happy but now I'm stuck:


I have a Dropdown(Items):



And a ComboBox(Items) with multiple select:




I got that values from another lists and I want to insert in another List('Procedimientos') but I don't want duplicated records. 



So for example:


colA    _|_ colB

hello         world

hello         daddy


Insert: hello(from dropDown), world,Jenny(from comboBox)


Would be fail for world but for Jenny would be pass:

colA    _|_ colB

hello         world

hello         daddy

hello         Jenny


I'm trying this but don't works:

Set(item;First(Filter(Procedimientos;Procedimiento in comboBoxPuestos.SelectedItems.Puesto;nombrePuesto in Dropdown1.Selected.Result)));;
Patch(Procedimientos;item;{Procedimiento: Dropdown1.Selected.Result; nombrePuesto: comboBoxPuestos.Selected.Puesto})

Smiley Sad


Any ideas are welcome.




Hi @Charlyvil 


You can use "in" operator for that in your expression, so the formula will go like:
Filter(DataSourceName, "Value1" in ColumnName.FieldName)
Here, ColumnName is the name of column in SP list which hold multiple values and FieldName is the name of column for that lookup. Value1 is the value that you want to search. If you need more help with the specifics, please share the details about the schema of the list and we might be able to help you better.
Hope this Helps!
