Nested tables in Collection



Trying to make a new table from a nested collection to make my life a bit easier. I planned on making two "summary" collections based on a bigger, nested collection gathered from a json response.


I made my first summary table "colSummary" that contains company name and their score:




I now want to make a similar summary collection called "colCountry". I have tried the formula below and the company name is in the collection but it cannot find the country name. I'm having difficulty because in my larger collection the country column is actually a nested table with one heading "name"



This is the structure of my main collection with the information I need under the column "name":


I would like this information so I could display the data on my app here:


If you think there is a better way of doing this I am open to suggestions. If you also need more information please ask.

Hi @joneillhso ,


Try to put below formula in a dropdown control, choose the country field as the display value. Then use "Dropdown1.Selected.Value" to show this.
