Patch text value to dropdown

Hello all !!!

 

Hope you're doing great.

 

New question from me today... I'm trying to patch a text string to a dropdown in my list. I have this formula but of course it doesn't work since "Obsolete" is a dropdown and requires a record value while "Yes" is just text.

 

Patch(Activity,ThisItem,{Obsolete:"Yes"})

 

would you have any idea how i can do it ?

 

Thanks a lot !!

 

Regards

I'm sorry i disturbed everyone with this 😞

 

I couldn't find a way to delete the post .. 😞
