Used PowerApps to create two dependent drop-down fields in my SharePoint list, but when I use the field to enter data it does not show up in the list.

Hi all, hope you're doing well.

For the past week I have been using PowerApps to customise a form in a SharePoint list I have been creating. Specifically, I've been using it to create a dependent dropdown choice field based on what is selected in a previous choice field (as per this article;


So the new entry form works as expected; the issue I'm having now though is when I create a new list entry using the customised form, no data shows in the columns which I edited in PowerApps.

If I double click the entry, it only shows the default value (CT) in both Error Category and Error Sub-Category, rather than the ones I selected.


Although I'm not too sure I've got a feeling that there's a setting in PowerApps I need to change so it actually shows the data in list view, though I could be wrong.

Any help would be very much appreciated - thanks in advance.


See attached images for an example of the issue.
