Common Data Service Option Set Value to Text

Hello,

 

I am currently working on a Canvas powerapps application that utlizes the Common Data Service with a  custom entity "Customer".  For this entity, I have a field, "City", which is an option-set with 3 choices (Pittsburgh, Columbus, DC).  I have an edit form attached to this entity that adds records to this entity.  It allows the user to pick a city from the dropdown. The form submits successfully.  I have another screen which is supposed to show the information regarding to the customers they have enetered, but it doesn't show city properly.  It just says [objecct Object]. 

 

How can I access the city that the user entered? It currently gets stored as a "complex" field type, but I think I would prefer it to be a String (if possible).   

 

Summarized: I want the city to be chosen from a dropdown and stored in the Customer entity in a usuable format.

 

Let me know if you need me to clarify anything!

 

 

Thanks,

 

Matt

Hi @mattcole19 ,

 

Can you please explain more about the part "show the information regarding to the customers they have enetered, but it doesn't show city properly"? Are there 2 entities involved in this app? Did you create a relationship between city and customers entity? 

 

Regards,

Mona
