SubmitForm fails on after first submit


I presume my solution will be related to this but I just implemented a solution suggested here, so I wanted to continue from there since I did not foresee this being an issue. So this is what it is, I have SharePoint list called "Submitted" and a SharePoint list called "Contact" (this list has two columns, Name and Email). "Submitted" has a lookup column that refers to Name column in "Contact" list (called Recipient).


"Submitted" has been loaded as a Form on my PowerApp. The app is connected to a Power Automate flow, where clicking on "Submit" creates an entry in the list and sends an email to the recipient selected in the "Recipient" field. I had a disabled text field that loaded the email of the selected recipient. This was working well till the requirement changed and I was asked to add another field for secondary recipients.

Secondary recipients field needs to be a multi-select dropdown, and this is where my problem started. I figured I could add another lookup field in Submitted list and allow for multiple entries. However, when I did this, whenever I tried using the app to make a submission, only the last selection made it to the record. So I gave that up and created a custom card in the form. The custom card has a dropdown that has "Contact.Name" as a source and a disabled text field (called moreEmails). Multiple selections in "Secondary Recipients" create a concatenation of the emails in the disabled text field. Now, then the flow runs, it sends an email to recipients in the "Recipient" and the "Secondary Recipients", and the app navigates to the next page. Problem is, this only runs once. When I come back to the page, I get the error: 

Name isn't valid. 'Title' isn't recognized.

This error appears most commonly when a formula refers to something that no longer exists. For example a control that you have deleted.

Location: moreEmails.Default


The default property of the "moreEmails" text field is:

      secondaryRecipients.SelectedItems As aSel,
         Name = aSel.Title


The OnSelect property is fairly straightforward:


I am neither deleting, nor moving anything, so I am at a loss for why this may be happening.


I would sincerely like to thank @WarrenBelz for getting me this far, hopefully I am one last step away from this being done.

Hello @vmakker 


You have quite a bit of a nesting issue. Can we go back to your original goal and explain to the part where you are still at the 


"Secondary recipients field needs to be a multi-select dropdown, and this is where my problem started. I figured I could add another lookup field in Submitted list and allow for multiple entries. However, when I did this, whenever I tried using the app to make a submission, only the last selection made it to the record."




Show me the code on that one so we can see how to move forward.

I will try to guess that


Name = aSel.Title


 When you go back to the form, there is no value for aSel, so there is no such property of Title for aSel, and so Name cannot be resolved, to lookup the Contact.


So you should try to account for secondaryRecipients.SelectedItems being Empty in some cases, and then have nothing for the default in that case, such as 


//untested - see if it works though

         secondaryRecipients.SelectedItems As aSel,
            Name = aSel.Title



See if this helps @vmakker

Hi @vmakker ,

I will put in my small contribution as you tagged me - firstly if moreEmails is in a Custom Card (which has no Update property), then it has no bearing on the Form submission process (please confirm this is the case and we can eliminate this as the issue). The next issue is the Table you posted in the original thread

Name (Title)| Email
Person1     | Email1
Person2     | Email2
Person3     | Email3
Person4     | Email4

where I suspect you have renamed the Title field to Name (neither good practices - the renaming and the new field name). If so, try Name instead of Title and see how this works.

moreEmails text field is in a custom card. I think if someone were to make an app with all bad practices, it would be my app.

This was the items attribute for my secondary recipients field: 

Filter(Contact, Title = DataCardValue7.Selected.Value)

A student went to a wise man and asked how did he get such good judgement in complicated matters.   The wise man said "From experience."  The student then asked "How do you get experience?".  The wise man said,"From bad judgement." 

Unfortunately the error persists. It works when the app is reloaded, but when I click on "Add Another", I get the error. I am going to try this without lookup columns.

@vmakker What's the formula for when you press "Add Another" is it the formula you gave for OnSelect in original post or is it something else?

"Add Another" goes back to the screen with the form. So the formula is:
