Conditional statement working only SOMETIMES

Hey all, 
So I have a powerApp that:

If(CurrentUser.FullName in '[dbo].[PAR_Comments_Submission]'.User_Submitted,Exit(true), SubmitForm(Form1))

Basically
 - On a timer end 
 - Takes the users fullname 
 - Checks if it is already in the database
 - If it is the app exits
 - If it isnt submits a form 

The problem is this only works SOMETIMES
Sometimes the app exits when the users detials are already in the database  (as inteneded) 
Other times it will still stubmit the form even though the data is already there

Any help appreciated,
Thanks

Re: Conditional statement working only SOMETIMES

Hi @Connor_Taylor,

One reason that the function only works part time could be due to delegation issues related to the “in”  function which is not delegatable.  Instead please try a combination of IsBlank() and Lookup() to test for inclusion. Lookup() is a delegatable function.

Re: Conditional statement working only SOMETIMES

Hi @Drrickryp,

 

This approuch was working for most but still seems to only work sometimes on others

This was my updated statement

If(Not(IsBlank(LookUp(PowerBIIntegration.Data, Value = 39).Value)) ,NewForm(Form1);Navigate(Sub,ScreenTransition.Fade),If(Not(IsBlank(LookUp(PowerBIIntegration.Data, Value = 40).Value)),Navigate(Screen2,ScreenTransition.Fade),NewForm(EditForm1);Navigate(BrowseScreen1_1,ScreenTransition.Fade)))

Basically:
 - If the value is 39 THEN navigate to a form page
 - If the value is 40 THEN navigate to a different page
 - Else navigate to a different page

But this only works sometimes, as if the conditional statements are ignored and navigates to the 'Else' page.

Can you think of how to fix this?

Thank you
