My app only shows checkmarks where a text value should appear

Hello, I'm hoping someone can understand why my app is doing this. I've created simple three question app and it's getting very close to being done, but this problem is stumping me.

 

I am able to successful write to my Sharepoint list with this code:

 

Patch('QuestionDB', {Title: Now(), Employee: User().FullName, Question1: If(A1N, true), Question2: If(A2N, true), Question3: If(A3N, true)});

 

When I view the list, my columns Question1, Question2, and Question three I see values of either true or false, so it is clear the data is being written correctly.  But when I attempt to display it in my app, the columns only display solid check marks, no matter if the list value is true or false.

 

Here is sliver of the Sharepoint list:

Here is what the app looks like:

The Question1, 2, and 3 variables are the last three columns and should show a True or False in the data table columns.  It being d data table instead of a gallery seems to be wrong too.  Not sure how I didn't get a gallery.  What did I do wrong?

 

TIA,

 

Aaron

I reloaded the data from my Sharepoint list and it updated the data types. So that solved my data table issues, but I decided to switch to a gallery instead of a data table.  It's working out much nicer.

Please try changing your column to a Text Column  as shown in the screenshot below.  Do this by clicking on the Data Table then Edit fields.

It doesn't appear that I have those choices for the Question fields.

Agreed, I always use Galleries: never Data Tables.  The Gallery control offers so much flexibility it makes Data Tables useless IMHO 😞
