Options other than option sets in a dropdown menu

I want to display options other than option sets in a dropdown menu.
Is it possible to display a text-type field (list) of Data A in a dropdown menu?
There are hundreds of data entries like A, B, C, and so on, and each of them has a different content for the text-type field (list), so I believe using option sets would be inappropriate.

You can display any type of data in a dropdown (either static or dynamic)…

In your case, set the choices type to text, and the choices course to whatever field from whatever datatype it is you want to display.

Thank you, your advice has helped me make progress with my issue.
I was able to specify the text field I want to display, but when I preview it, the content is empty.
In reality, it contains multiple texts in a list.
Do you have any idea what might be causing this?

You haven’t defined the Option Caption - the option caption is the text that will appear in the dropdown, relating to the Choices Source - so if it’s empty then the dropdown will not show anything.

In your case (as you’re using text values) just set it to Current Option

Thank you, my problem has been completely resolved.
It may have been something basic, but I have learned about how to use the dropdown.
Thank you for your help.
