Error for value length in dropdown

Hi!

 

I have created a form with multiple dropdown controls. When trying to submit the form, I get an error stating "Value must be at most 25 characters in length" for one of the dropdown control. The char limit related to the column that is used for the dropdown items is 100. 

 

Is this an error related to my data/form, or is there a 25 character length limit for items in PowerApps dropdowns?

 

Any help would be appreciated - thanks!

Re: Error for value length in dropdown

Hi @vew,

 

What’s the data source your app based on?

Could you share more details on your app?

On what function do you get the error message?

Per my certain research, I haven’t found any doc on character length limit on dropdown control.

Please share more details to help reproduce this issue.

 

Best regards,

Mabel

Thank you for your reply!

 

The app is used for employees to submit comments on their work. I have created a form with cascading dropdowns.

 

The form is based on data being pulled from Microsoft SQL Server.

 

The error shows when a dropdown item greater than 25 characters is selected. Attached is a screenshot of the error message.
