Patch of form (from SP choice column) with error "expected type Record. Found type Table."

I have a SharePoint list ("123456_DOE, John) that I am trying to patch to. The data for the patch is coming from a form (the form is created by a different SP list 'Template' with the same headers). The form contains the fields number, single line of text, choice and attachment. So far, I keep getting an error on the choice fields.

 

The line for the choice fields are saying, "The type of this argument 'Frequency_of_Support' does not match the expected type 'Record'. Found type 'Table'."

 

To help diagnose the problem, I created a button that collects the output of one of the choice fields. The output of the collection - which is the 'Table' of the field is:

I'm not sure how I get only the value column from the table. I am confused, because the value column would look the exact same as the table.

 

I tried doing ***.SelectedItems.Value, but this is either invalid (it is not suggested as an option from the autocomplete/intellisense) and/or produces the same result (output is a table).

 

Any help on how to get the type Record (instead of Table) would be grealty appreaciated.

 

The whole code:

    '123456_DOE, John',
    Defaults('123456_DOE, John'),

Hi @J_Taylor ,

 

'"The type of this argument 'Frequency_of_Support' does not match the expected type 'Record'. Found type 'Table''

If the choice column is a single choice column, it will expect type 'Record' i.e. {Value:"value1"}

If the choice column is a column allows multiple selections, it will expect type 'Table' i.e. Table({Value:"value1"},{Value:"value2"}).

So, my guess is that your column is a single choice column. Please check it.

Besides, please refresh your datasource in canvas app.

No, I want to patch all selected items from the choice field.
