I'm using two combobox in my powerapp form 

and using label text for displaying the selecteditems from the combobox value 

when the app open in the editmode only the last selected value is showing in the label text 



Combobox 1 -  update property  of datacard : ComboBox1.Selected.Result

                         DSI       :   Filter(Split(Parent.Default,Char(13)), !IsBlank(Result))

                         items   :    Distinct(Table2,'Entity Name')


Label 1 - Text :  Concat(ComboBox1.SelectedItems,Result,Char(13))

               update property of label  :  Concat(ComboBox1.SelectedItems,Result,Char(13))                       (*tried label1.text  )



Combobox 2 -    update property of datacard  :   ComboBox2.Selected.'Role Name'

                             DSI      :   ForAll(Split(Parent.Default,Char(13)),{'Role Name':Result})

                            Items   :     Filter(Table2,'Entity Name' in ComboBox1.SelectedItems.Result).'Role Name'


Label 2  - Text  :  Concat(ComboBox2.SelectedItems,Result,Char(13))

                update property of label2 datacard  : Label2.Text


Selecteditems are getting stored in my sharepointlist (single line text coloum  )


Only the last selecteditem in the combobox  is showing in the app, when the app opens in the editmode

Hi @Anonymous ,


Based on your description, I have made a simple test for your reference.


According to my test, maybe the Text property of Label2 cause the problem.


Formula in Text property of Label 2:

Concat(ComboBox2.SelectedItems,'Role Name',Char(13))

Thanks for your reply , 


I even tried that one before but same result, only the last selected item is showing in combobox label when the form is opened in edit mode 

I was wondering is their is anything that should be done in the update property property of datacards

Current update property :   ComboBox2.Selected.'Role Name'

Hi @Anonymous ,


Since you have only Text column in SP list, you will need to concatenate the selected role names to a line of text when updating.

Ppdate property:  

Concat(ComboBox2.Selected,'Role Name')

Hi ,

I changed the formula to

 Concat(ComboBox4.SelectedItems,'Role Name')

It worked fine without any error but still when i open the form after the user submission, only the last selected value is still showing up

Not applicable


 The update property of my datacard is 

Combobox 2 -    update property of datacard  :   ComboBox2.Selected.'Role Name'

I think this would be the issue for only displaying the last selected items , i tried to add selecteditems instead of selected but it is showing some error 


Could u please help me to fix this error

@Anonymous ,

Please look at this blog of mine the process - note that this whole idea has an annoying flaw if you want to change the content - the user has to delete all existing content and re-select. To be honest a multi-choice field does a much better job and was what the combo box was designed to use.


Please click Accept as solution if my post helped you solve your issue. This will help others find it more readily. It also closes the item. If the content was useful in other ways, please consider giving it Thumbs Up.
