Linked Dropdowns and Distinct Function

I have 2 dropdowns, namely ddCompany and ddProperty.

 

ddProperty, shows all properties for the company selected is ddCompany.

 

However, when I successfully add the distinct function to ddCompany, the formula within ddPropery no longer works.

 

Formulas before distinct
ddCompany - SortByColumns('Property Information',"ClaimantCompany")

ddProperty - Filter('Property Information',ddCompany.Selected.'Claimant Company'='Claimant Company').'Property Name'

 

ddCompany formula with Distinct

Distinct(SortByColumns('Property Information',"ClaimantCompany"),'Claimant Company')

 

Please can someone advise a way to make the ddCompany dropdown only show unique values without affecting the ddProperty dropdown.

 

Thanks

Hi @SG1990 ,

See if this approach works - ddCompany

Sort(
   Distinct(
      'Property Information',
      ClaimantCompany
   ),
   Result
)

 ddProperty

Filter(
   'Property Information',
   ddCompany.Selected.Result = 'Claimant Company'
).'Claimant Company'
