Question: Variable being set to a control instead of an integer from a data card value

I am trying to use a global variable like this:

Navigate(DetailViewScreen, ScreenTransition.None, {selectedID: DataCardValue14})

This is returning a control type variable, when I need it to be an integer so I can compare an ID from another list on the following screen to this variable. 

This looks like the following:

Filter(LineItems, ReportID.Value = selectedID)

The above code gives an error of invalid arguement type. 

Please help!

Hi @jaredt17 

Assuming that DataCardValue14 is a text input control or label, you can probably fix this problem by referring to the Text property like so.

Navigate(DetailViewScreen, ScreenTransition.None, {selectedID: DataCardValue14.Text})
