Multiselect not saving from datacard listbox

I have been researching this and tried different things.  I have two different multiselect datacards on a form.  One has a combobox and the other a datalist.  These feed a SharePoint list.  The first one with the combobox (barriers) works.  I have a second one with the listbox that uses this formula to get it's items: Distinct(Filter(Choices(['My SP List'.Reasons), Value exactin Filter('Barrier Reason', Barrier in ddBarrier.SelectedItems).Reason),Value).  The listbox does display the correct items.  But when I test and select any (even one), nothing saves.  The Update for this datacard is ListBox3.SelectedItemsText.Value.  I have tried different things there including using RenameColumns.

 

Thanks for the information.  This pic does show that I am getting proper results.  Just do not know why these are not saving

Hi @guyinkalamazoo ,

 

It was not relating to the Items property of the ListBox at all, Instead, it depends on the Update property of the DataCard.

 

Try below formula, append on Update of the DataCard after modifying the Items of the ListBox:

ForAll(ListBox3.SelectedItems.Result As A, LookUp(Choices(['My SP List'.Reasons), Value = A.Result))

 

Explain in short, the Update of this DataCard need to be set to actual RECORDs in the DEFAULT Items of the ListBox which is Choices(['My SP List'.Reasons), so here using LookUp to find all records that equal Value to the selected Results.

 

Hope this helps.

I deleted the field and datacard from the form and just ran it in it's raw state without any Filter and it does work.  So leaving just this part for Items works: Choices(['My SP List'.Reasons).  At least now I know it might have something to do with the Items formula
