😀😀Sorry about that. Those are column and table names i use for my test. I have edited the post.

Tested with the following:

 

So expand your collection to:

Collect( Test4, { Company:Split(Label1.Text,"@").Result});
ClearCollect(Test5,Ungroup(Test4,"Company"))
 
Then Concat in the TextBox:
Concat(Test5,Result &",")
------------

Revise it to:

ClearCollect( Test4, { Company:Split(TextInput5_3.Text,",").Result});
ClearCollect(Test5,Ungroup(Test4,"Company"));
ClearCollect(Test6,Distinct(Test5,Result))
 
or
ClearCollect( Test4, { Company:Split(Trim(TextInput5_3.Text),", ").Result});
ClearCollect(Test5,Ungroup(Test4,"Company"));
ClearCollect(Test6,Distinct(Test5,Result))
 
Then
Concat(Test6,Result &",")
 
------------

As easy way could be.

Concat(Distinct(CollectionName,ColoumnName),Result & ";")

Its because your Records are inside a record.

Since @eka24 has already given you the solution which is similar to mine the only difference is this code will not return the recurring values.

This is on my button
Collect(Test4, {company: Split(TextInput7.Text,",")} );
ClearCollect(Test5,Ungroup(Test4,"company"));

This is my new text field
Concat(Distinct(Test5,Result),Result & ";")

Hello @eka24 ,

 

 

Do you have any idea on how to not repeat the same value in the text? For example, in the collection, i have three values : "Company1", "Company2", "Company1"? In the text, i would like to have "Company1,Company2"
