cascading with dropdowns and sharepoint list

I have 2 dropdowns on a form  datasource is the same sharepoint list.

First dropdown1

Distinct(Sales_Commission_Category,Topics)

 

dropdown2

Filter(Sales_Commission_Category,Topics=Dropdown1.Selected.Result,Subtopic)

 

my problem:

Topics=Dropdown2.Selected.Result   should be   .Selected.Value   but the ".Value" method will not show up.

 

Thnks

That is what you get when you use Distinct. So the formula should be:
Filter(Sales_Commission_Category,Topics=Dropdown1.Selected.Result)

but now I have repeating values in dropdown2, that are not unique to dropdown 1 

In using cascading dropdowns, there should be a relationship between the dropdown1 and dropdown2. Do the unique values have a link with the other dropdown.

attached is my sharepoint list in excel.

 

Strating with the Column "Topics"

Distinct(Filter(Sales_Commission_Category,Topics=Dropdown1.Selected.Result),Subtopic)

 

this ended up working.
