Problem with region / language with the syntax

Hi all,


I have made a cascading lookup setup. This works fine. I have add a distinct filter to delete the duplicates. The solution is fine, when i my made PowerApp in an English site. Here is the code:



        Id: Distinct(
                Faculty.Id = DataCardValue2.Selected.Id



When i use my code in a Dutch site, the lookup column doesn't filter/work on the Id, specify: Faculty.Id. 

I saw in the English list the ID is with capital letters and in the Dutch list it is with one Capital letter, Id. I have checked this blog to change the separator's but nothing seems to work. When i change a dot of command, i get a invalid argument of the code. 

Had anyone experience the with a different region / language ?

sorry, i use the function OnChange in my PowerApps form.

Just to clarify, you're calling the code on the OnChange property of a Dropdown control on your form?

Yes, see here for the explenation: here 


collSchoolsThis is our collection where all related schools for the selected faculty are written in to
SchoolsThis is the name of the column where the data is written in to
FilterThis is the function that filters values from a data set. The format of this function is as follows:
SchoolsThis is the data set that we use in our filter. In this case, it is the Schools list we added as data source
Faculty.ValueThis is the value we are looking for in our data set. In this case, it is the Faculty lookup field in our Schools list
DataCardValue2.Selected.ValueThis is the selected faculty from our PowerApp


Can you confirm that the name of the dropdown where you attached the OnChange code is still called DataCardValue2? It hasn't changed?

Correct, is't still the same.
