Update Label based on App Onstart or ComboBox

I have a label on my start screen that when the user logs in it lookup in a list there desk location, this works well, however I now need to add the ability to have that information update if the supervisor who is logged in puts in a different employees name in a combo box and I want it to update the information in the label


I have this on the label now

LookUp(mapPins,varCurrentUserName='Current Occupant'.DisplayName).Location & " - " 

my combobox is called cmb_Employee


Is this possible?

Hi @Dorinda 


Set the text property of the label control to

    LookUp(mapPins,varCurrentUserName='Current Occupant'.DisplayName).Location & "-",
    LookUp(mapPins,cmb_Employee.Selected.DisplayName ='Current Occupant'.DisplayName).Location & "-"
