Hi @cchan000 ,

Could you tell me the data type of REGIONS and MARKETS?

If they are choice column ,could you tell me whether they allow multiple choice?

I assume that they are both single choice column.

I've made a similar test for your reference:

1)Set the REGIONS combo box's Items: 

Choices(listname.REGIONS )

Set the REGIONS combo box's OnChange:

ReSet(MARKETS combo box name)

2)Set the MARKETS combo box's Items:


Set MARKETS combo box's DefaultSelectedItems:

RenameColumns(Distinct(Filter(listname,REGIONS in REGIONS combo box.SelectedItems),MARKETS.Value),"Result","Value")

Then , if you choose selection in the region combo box, the MARKETS combo box will automatically poppulate value.9112.PNG
