    It seems the Substring widget will not work for Dropdown list field.

    It does work on Textbox field as intended though.

     

    Here is a test video

    What you can do for a workaround is to copy first the value of the Dropdown list to a Textbox using Condition logic, and the Subsring the Textbox which contains the Dropdown selected value.

    Hope this help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
