"Invalid argument type (Controlt). Expecting a Text value instead."

Hi,

I have a multi screen power app, with a save button at the end so that the user can click it and then a flow will pick up all values and store it on the sharepoint list.

 

The sharepoint list has some fields marked as drop down lists, and hence the Powerapp is also desigined in such a way. The problem I am facing is how to pick up the Drop down values from the powerapp and transfer to the Sharepoint lists. I get an error saing Invalid Argurments in the Run fucntion. and when I hover over the field name in the Run function it says "Invalid argument type (Controlt). Expecting a Text value instead.

Re: "Invalid argument type (Controlt). Expecting a Text value instead."

What is 'I-EmployeeID'? Is it the name of the dropdown that displays the list of possible employee ids? If so, then you need to use 'I-EmployeeID'.Selected.<propertyname>, where <propertyname> is the name of the property in the object that is in the dropdown that you want sent to the flow. Similarly for the other parameters.
