Powerapps combo box needs to be set on every edit even though value appears on Sharepoint List

I have a combo box in my Powerapps form linked to Sharepoint List. I set the value and save. The value is saved in Sharepoint List. I open for edit and try to save the form - i am asked to re-enter the value in the combo box (as i have set required = true). 

When I select the same value and submit. it gets saved.

Kindly help why I need to enter the value of combo box on every edit. I am stuck with this and I have a review of my application tomorrow.

Just in case anyone looks for solution :


I created a new list item as single text. replaced it with combo box in powerapps form and set the properties as below. This got my combo box working without errors:


DefaultSelectedItems set as - LookUp(Distinct(VendorsV2,Name).Result, Result = ThisItem.Title)

Items property set to - Distinct(VendorsV2,Name).Result

Update property of DataCard set to - ComboBox3.Selected.Result
