Name isn't valid error with people and choice fields



I have a Power Apps form based on a SharePoint list. I am getting a Strange error with Choice and People fields. I did no changes to my list structure. The errors I receive are in the attached screenshot. I even deleted the fields and recreated them again. I still see the error. Please advise. It is happening only with Choice fields. The property panel of the field in power apps doesn't indicate where the error is. This is really a bug.

Hi @cooltechie ,

Could you show me these fields' properties formulas:

1)combo box/drop down's Items?

2)data card's Update?

Usually this kind of problem is because of not using the right formula to update.

What's more, please check your connection.

You could click the "refresh" button or recreate connection.

If the connection becomes invalid, it will also show this error.



Best regards,

Why would a connection become invalid all of a sudden without touching it?
