problem with combobox, o365useres and defaultselecteditems

I have a combobox configured to search o365users so I can search and select people in the organisation. On submission it writes to a single column in SQL.

It works well, apart from the defaultselecteditems property always adds the second account seen above. 
It happens if I manually select one or more users, after saving and reopening the form 'exchange online-applicationAcount' has always been tagged on at the end. 

I believe it is because I have a ; at the end of the last account when submitted. 
in SQL it looks like this

DefaultSelectedItems property

 

ForAll(
Split(
        Gallery.Selected.ProjectSponsor,
        ";"
    ),
    First(
        Office365Users.SearchUserV2(
            {
                searchTerm: Result,
                top: 1
            }
        ).value
    )
)

 

 

and Update

 

Concat(ComboBox1.SelectedItems, DisplayName & ";")

 



Does anyone have any suggestions?

Please consider changing your Formula to the following:

ForAll(
    Filter(
        Split(Gallery.Selected.ProjectSponsor, ";"),
        !IsBlank(Result)
    ),
    First(
        Office365Users.SearchUserV2(
            {searchTerm: Result,top: 1}
        ).value
    )
)

 

I hope this is helpful for you.
