Choices with "contains value"

Hi all,

 

I am looking to amend my choices formula to allow the user to type in values that are contained within the data source. I.E if I am searching for "Apples, Bananas, Pears" currently I would have to start typing with "Apples" whereas I want the option to come up should I decided to start typing with "Banana".

 

My current formula in Items is: Choices(DataSource.Column)

 

Thanks

Tom

Hi @BCBuizer 

 

I managed to figure it out, what I was missing was the Filter function around the choices. I ended up with the below:

Items = Filter(Choices(Recruitment.'Site Name'), Value)
