Update Label based upon dropdown

I am just learning Powerapps, and am having difficulties in updating a label based upon the value of a dropdown.

 

I have a table ("Table3") with two columns PRW, and Description and based upon the value of PRW to display the description.

My label is Label4 and the Dropdown is named Dropdown3

I have figured out most of everything else based upon reading this forum, but am having problems with this.

 

Thank you for reading this!

It's hard to tell from the information you provided without knowing the formula for the DropDown Items property.

However, despite that, you can probably use this formula for your Text property on the label:

   Lookup(Table3, PRW=DropDown3.Selected).Description

 

Again, not knowing the Items property of the DropDown, you might need to adjust the formula as follows:

  Lookup(Table3, PRW=DropDown3.Selected.Value).Description

 

I hope that helps you to the next step.
