Save Filtered Lookup Value in List Custom Form

Hi Team , 


We are filtering the Request Type Column value using below Process Items: Distinct(Filter(lkp_TransferRequestType,Material_Details = materialDetailsVal.Selected.Value).Title,Title)


after submitting the form, this column value not saving to the List . 


Please help me to resolve this Issue .


Please let me know if needs more details 







my solution works with multiple selection for dropdown. 



It saves only one value . For example if I select "a","b" 

the value saved in SP is "a" only.

In my app, there are 2 items saved. 


Filter(Choices('CMT Niv 2'.B_TO1_cmt2);Value in Filter(gebruikers; Diensten.Value = "CMT Niv2").'Naam Gebruike')


The first part are the items of the dropdown of a the lookupcolumn: Choices('CMT Niv 2'.B_TO1_cmt2)


Then you start to filter, based on the value (in my case the departmentvalue in "diensten") in a column of the other sharepointlist (my list of users = gebruikers) with result the usernames of the namecolumn (naam gebruike)

Filter(Choices('CMT Niv 2'.B_TO1_cmt2);Value in Filter(gebruikers; Diensten.Value = "CMT Niv2").'Naam Gebruike')


CMT Niv 2-- Is this a sharepoint list?

gebruikers--Is this a sharepoint list?

Diensten,Naam Gebruike'-- are these column of gebruikers list

Filter(Choices(sharepointlistname.columname);Value in Filter(sharepointlistname; columnname.Value = "CMT Niv2").columnname)

Filter(Choices('CMT Niv 2'.B_TO1_cmt2);Value in Filter(gebruikers; Diensten.Value = "CMT Niv2").'Naam Gebruike')


sharepointlistname.columname: this is the list and column that is attached to the form (where the data has to be stored)


sharepointlistname: this is the listname where the lookupcolumn looks his data up. (the big users list) 


Columnname in pink sharepointlist (big userlist with columns for the names, phonenumber and department) this column is the department


Columnname in pink sharepointlist (big users list) . This is the column with the name of the user. 


With this formula. I filter the items of a lookupcolumn   so i have only the names of the department "CMT Niv2" 


How do you would like to filter your dropdown in the form? 




Facing same issue in canvas app.
