Can a collection that consists of a single column be converted to a text string where each cell is separated by a comma?

Hi @Andie 

It sounds like you want to use the Concat() function.  Please see if this helps: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/functions/function-concatenate 

The example in the documentation is: 

Concat( Products, Name & ", " ) Evaluates the expression Name & ", " for each record of Products and concatenates the results together into a single text string. "Violin, Cello, Trumpet, "
