Please look the below pics and advice on this.

You can use the same approach to update the record using values from your MS Form. 

See: Re: Get Dataverse Choices with Label and ID(Value) - Power Platform Community (microsoft.com)

 

Here is an example based on the linked post:

Snag_a020542.png

You can hard code each of the option set values into a variable of type (JSON) object. The text in the JSON object must match EXACTLY what you have in used in your MS Form for the options:

 

{
  "Green Apple": 544500000,
  "Blush Pear": 544500001,
  "Baby Banana": 544500002,
  "Honey Dew Mango": 544500003
}

The Select actions takes the question "Choose one or more fruits" as its input (From). The From field uses an expression which converts the "Choose one or more fruits" response from MS Forms (which is a string!) into an array of JSON objects. You will need to wrap your question within the json action:

Snag_9ef4b7f.png

 

This is the expression for the Map:  variables('varChoices')?[item()]. This expression takes a Choice text (e.g. Blush Pear") , and returns the option set value.  For example variables('varChoices')?['Blush Pear'] would return 544500002. 
 
The Select action produces an array which we can use in Join action.

The Join action returns all the items from the array as a string separated by the comma character.

Finally, we can update the field usng the output from Join action

Hi @Sk365 ,

 

With Datavese you can't use and assign the text descriptions for a choice field :

 

"Physical Therapy", 

 "Speech Therapy", 

 "Outpatient Mental Health Therapy"

 

Dataverse assigns an integer value for each choice option and you will need to find and use those values in the Add a row action.

 

For example, I want to update a row and change the choice of fruit to Apple and Mango. The field name I need to change is FruitChoice (in the Dataverse table the field's actual name is crc37_fruitchoice). I need to find the integer values for Apple and Mango:

The browser will open or switch to Power Apps:

Snag_4df681e.png

Unfortunately the option set values are displayed with commas:

Snag_4dace91.png

These are the integer values for choice of fruit I extracted:

"Apple" = 544500000

"Pear" = 544500001

"Banana" = 544500002

"Mango" = 544500003 

In the Update a row action below, I added fruit choice Mango and Apple:

Snag_4cdcf4c.png

This the the runtime action:

This is the updated record:

Hello @ekarim2020 

I tried it and it worked some how.

but the issue in here is the value needs to be read from the Microsoft forms. When a form is filled it should read the response and create a record in contacts. If I put the integer values dynamically in the response action, it’s directly giving all the options available on the field I only need the options the I select

 

hope you got my point

Hello @ekarim2020 

Tried what u said and it still shows the error “ not valid integers”.

 

I used Initialize variables then next select and later Join action. In join action the output is showing as value instead of text but when I update the join output in the required mapped field is shows the same error not valid integers.

Apologies @ekarim2020 

 

I haven’t used “Switch map to text mode” step in the Select action, So it throwed me the error. Now it’s working fine

 

 

Thanks a lot and what can I say for your help. Man you saved my time and life, I was struggling on this from few days. Thanks a lot again and again

Hi @Sk365 ,

 

Can you share screenshots of your flow, including the details in variable, select and join actions.

You can capture the screens using:  Use Snipping Tool to capture screenshots (microsoft.com)

or you can use Edge's built in screen capture:
