Selection of an item, restriction of options in another

Hello good afternoon. I have two drop-down fields and would like to make the following query
How can I restrict that if in the X field the user selects "100", only the options 101,103 and 104 are shown in the Y field ?

Hi @elaaadani 

 

Switch(
    Dropdown1.Selected.x,
    "1000",
    Filter(
        Table2,
        y * 1 < 1050
    ),
    "2000",
    Filter(
        Table2,
        y * 1 > 1999 && y * 1 < 3000
    ), etc.
)

 

worked perfectly for me.  I like to use * 1 instead of Value() to convert text to numbers.  It is a shortcut and easier to see in formulas._1.png_2.png

Hi @elaaadani 

Your text and your screenshot don't match but I will assume you mean 1000 and 1001, 1003 and 1004.

You would use the Switch() function as follows as the Items property of the dependent dropdown as follows:

 

 

Switch(Dropdown1.Selected.Value,"1000", Filter(list2, y <=1004),
                                "2000", Filter(list2, y>1004 && y <1100),
                                "3000", Filter(list2, y>=1100 && y <1200), etc,
)
                                   

 

 

 

Thank you very much for responding to me
I have some doubts.
The information in the drop-down lists comes from an excel table.
Drop-down 1 is filled with elements from table 1 and drop-down 2 from table 2, as I leave in the image for you to understand.
In that case, how can I implement this? since I get errors even when trying to use "Value" for both the filter and the switch
Thank you in advance

For some reason it doesn't work for me.

I have this in the formula when you select the element

 

Table 1 = First table from excel
Table 2= Second table from excel

 

Soc_1 = First Dropdown

Org_1= Second Dropdown

Switch(
    Soc_1.Selected,
    "1000",
    Filter(
        Table2,
        Org_1 * 1 < 1050
    ),
    "2000",
    Filter(
        Table2,
        Org_1 * 1 > 1999 && Org_1 * 1 < 3000
    )
)

 

Thanks !

The only problem I see is that you have not indicated the name of the column selected.  If you put a "." after Selected, does Intellisense indicate a choice?_1.png

If I select 1000 in the drop-down list 1, should I specify the column in the excel table where the information comes from ? That is to say
Soc_1.Selected.Table1, "1000" ?

What is the column name in your Table1

Table 1: Soc.

Table 2: OrgC
