Multiple Choice Column data not displaying in tables, galleries or other controls

I'm working with a data table that has columns that are not displaying data. I have these columns:

 

Evaluations: Multiple Choice Column

Crops: Lookup & Allow Multiple Values

Pests: Lookup & Allow Multiple Values

As  you can see from the screenshot, none of the information is displaying, despite changing the properties to "View multiselect".

 

I've also been running into problems with any multiple choice column in terms of filtering, galleries, and other tools. I know they are a harder column to work with, but I've seen others able to solve these problems. Any suggestions?

 

Thanks!

Hi @Sephiel,

 

May I know the reason why you use a Data table control instead of Gallery control?

 

I just tested with a multiple-value enabled SharePoint column and it is true that the data won't show in data table. This is because that so far , you cannot customize the styling of individual columns inside a data table control. That means that you can only add the fields inside data table by checking and unchecking the fields on the right side. If the fields don't show the data, then you cannot customize anything to make it show.

I would like to suggest you could try to use Gallery control instead. Select the first part(template part) of the Gallery, and insert list boxes controls. Then set the Items property of the list box control to:

ThisItem.MultipleChioceColumnName
