Reference Data Set From a Previous Drop Down List

Hello

 

How do I reference a data table based upon a previous drop down?

 

I have one table which is the master set of data ie Choice 1, Choice 2, Choice 3, when I select one of them, I want it to be able to look up the next table and only give the options for that table.

 

Each one is it's own table.

 

Choices
Choice  1Choice 2Choice 3
Choice 1AppleAppleBanana
Choice 2BananaOrangeOrange
Choice 3KumquatWatermelonKumquat
   Watermelon

 

Thanks

Doing that gave the same error as before.

 

However, there is more than 2 tables to choose from and it doesn't allow nested ifs.  I need to be able to choose from 4+ tables

Hi @SunnyJess ,

This makes no sense to me why the original did not work (actually sort of worked but with warning error) and why the below works, but it does (another anomaly in PowerApps code I guess).

Switch(
    Dropdown1.Selected.'Site (Site)',
    "BNO",
    Distinct(
        BNO,
        'BNO (BNO)'
    ),
    "MGR",
    Distinct(
        MGR,
        'MNR (MNR)'
    ),
    "YourThirdChoice",
    Distinct(
        YourThirdList,
        YourThirdField
    ),
    "YourFourthChoice",
    Distinct(
        YourFourthList,
        YourFourthField
    )
)
