Data binding, value vs text

Level 4
Level 4

Hi all,

I'm very much a novice when it comes to LC and scripting. I've got a form which gets submitted by users as an xml file to an email. When I open the xml file, I noticed that a couple dropdown list fields are showing the data in 2 different ways.

One is showing the field selection value (1) and another is showing the field selection text (OT - Other).

Both dropdown fields are set up the same way. Binding is Use Name(whateverfieldname) . I cant see anywhere to specify to use value vs text anywhere in the object palette. Where can I define which gets passed to the xml?

On the Binding tab of the Object palette for the drop down returning the value will have "Specify Item Values" selected.
