The property expects Record values, but this rule produces incompatible Table values

I have a single ComboBox with the data source being a SharePoint list of user Roles and Functions called RolesList.  Here's an example of this list:

 

Role     Function

Admin   Data Entry

Admin   Mailing

Admin   Meeting Planning

Other    Other Technical Work

Other    Database

 

The requirement is to display the set of functions based on the user's role in the drop-down portion of the ComboBox, but to also allow the user to search for a function that is not normally a part of their job (e.g., a admin helped with testing a database).

 

I've set the ComboBox Items property to SortByColumns(Filter(Distinct(RolesList, Function),StartsWith(Function,ComboBox1.SearchText)),"Result",Ascending).

 

In the ComboBox Default property, I've tried to use Filter(Distinct(RolesList,Function), usrRole = Role), but I get 'The property expects Record values, but this rule produces incompatible Table values' error message.

 

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Resolved it by changing the ITEMS property of the ComboBox to:

 

If(IsBlank(ComboBox.SearchText),Distinct(Filter(RolesList,usrRole=Role),Function),Filter(Distinct(RolesList,Function),StartsWith(Result,ComboBox.SearchText)))

 

The issue was that my original ITEMS property did not include the DISTINCT function in the True portion of the IF statement.  As such the results were 'Function' if True or 'Result' if False.  I added the DISTINCT function to both parts of the IF statement, set the DisplayFields and SearchFields (under the Advanced tab) to ["Result"] and left the Default property blank.
