Working With Combo Boxes In Power Apps

Hi,

 

I have a SharePoint list where data is stored as comma separated values for a particular column.

Eg: Column name is 'Department' and the data is stored as Sales,Marketing for a particular user A.

 

In the application i have a combo box where i want the department values to be shown as individual items based on the user name selected from a combo box above.

 

How can i achieve this ?

 

Any help will be appreciated greatly.

 

Regards

Srinath

Hi @Srinath ,

 

Please try to put the following codes to Combo box Items property and DefaultSelectedItems property.

 

Split(First(Distinct(Filter(TableName,Country=CB_CountryNew.Selected.Result&& EmployeeEmail=VarUserEmail),'Project Department')).Result,",")

 

Modify Update property of Data Card to convert the selection to Text when submitting.

 

Left(Concat(CB_Department.SelectedItems,Result & ","),Len(Concat(CB_Department.SelectedItems,Result & ","))-1)

 

Test Result:

@Srinath
Have you tried my suggestion above?

If not, create a new ComboBox and insert the code I suggested in those properties.
