  1. How do I show comma separated Display Names in label. I am Not able to write a formula using Concat. Name column table is confusing.
  2. Since it is in a table format I am not able to it display list content Gallery either.

Looking at your screenshots I think the collection is called SelectedItem and it only has one row. The column in the collection that has the user names is "Name".  If that is correct then the formula would look like this:

 

Left(Concat(First(SelectedItem).Name, DisplayName & "; "), Len(Concat(First(SelectedItem).Name, DisplayName & "; "))-2)

This assumes the values are in a como box called DataCardValue13.  
Example:
Left(Concat(DataCardValue13.SelectedItems, DisplayName & "; "), Len(Concat(DataCardValue13.SelectedItems, DisplayName & "; "))-2)

In this example we are concatenating the display name of the selected items in the combo box into a string separated by a semi colon. Then we are cleaning up the string by removing the trailing semi colon.

Hi Jeff, Values are not in the combobox. Values are in the collection. I have one more snapshot in original message for clarity.

Hi @Jeff_Thorpe 

That is correct.

Left(Concat(First(SelectedItem).Name, DisplayName & "; "), Len(Concat(First(SelectedItem).Name, DisplayName & "; "))-2)

This is working perfectly fine.

 

Could you please also help me in displaying list contents in gallery without use of Collection?
