two drop downs list

hi all

i was just wanting to know how i can get my drop downs to populate my list 

 

i have two drop downs which are relent on each other, but now i have added them in the text boxes go to the correct list but the 2 drop downs just populate the list i am using for the drop downs. 

 

i think it is something to do with the update for the card but not sure. i have tried to use dropdown1.selected.value but i keep getting an error message 

 

the to lists are named 

 

data for allowance drop down and stopping out allowance 

 

im verry new to power apps so it could be something easy i have done (i hope : ) )

Re: two drop downs list

@eka24  the link you provided doesn't go to any video from Shane Young.  Can you please update the link or share which video to watch as I'm also having this issue with my dropdown's not saving information back to my SharePoint list and if I go back to edit the information, it resets to defaults which has beendriving me nuts for days now.

 

Thank you

Re: two drop downs list

@andyw2, I've been watching a lot of Shane's videos over the last two weeks or so and they are very helpful but I just can't figure out what I'm missing and why my entries are not saving back to my main list.  So interested in what else is out there to maybe help.

Re: two drop downs list

i have watched loads of his videos, which are all realy good but none of it is helping me get the information from my app to the one share point list, it just populates my list i am using for the drop downs with the information and all the other information goes to the other list. its so frustrating when i know it is some thing stupid i am doing

Re: two drop downs list

@andyw2, I agree that they are very well done and have helped me figure out a lot but like you, I'm getting stuck at how to get the inputs back into my master list.

 

It looks like the New form is working, it's pulling the Auto number and the dropdown feed each other as I expect but once I click that save button in the form, I get blanks in my list and when I edit it resets to blank defaults.  Been fighting with this for like two weeks now and I'm just not getting anywhere.
