Show selected record from Datatable on a form

I am creating an App that should allow users to Add comments to 'Notice board' entries.  I have used the Sharepoint list template which displays the main 'notice' from the list.  I have created another list to store the users comments which has a column to hold the Notice ID to link the comments to the right notice.

 

The comments are shown in a data table on the detail screen.

 

I can select the comment and pass the ID from the comments list (comment ID, not notice ID) to a new screen but I can't get the filter working to display the selected comment.

 

Filter('Notice Board App Comments List',ID = CommentID)

 

I get an Information icon saying The property expects Record values but the rule produces incompatible table values.

 

This seemed like a simple thing to do but has left me scratching my head.  Any ideas?

Answering my own question.   I simply need to reference the DataTable.Selected in the Item property on the form viewer in the new screen.

can you share the command did you used ? @fbxiii

I put DataTableName.Selected in the forms Item property.  Although I think I took a different approach in the end and used a Gallery instead.
