Control Select outputting Row instead of Text type

I’m trying to filter my table with a select control but the filter is failing due to what I assume is mismatching types (Text vs Row). I have the selectable item set to type Text in the select control but it’s outputting as a row in the filter. (see images)

Is this expected?

I’m trying to filter a column of a cross-doc. The cross-doc’s column comes from another cross-doc. I think the 2 degrees of cross-doccing is messing up my ability to filter by type Row, so I’m trying to filter by text instead (row name).

Here’s the filter

Shouldn’t it be something like ProjectName.Name == Project Name? Sorry, without a demo doc it’s hard to tell what’s going on
