Combo Box Search In Different Order

I'm trying to add a combo box that will search for words that might not be in the exact order.

For example the field I'm searching has "Pen Blue Medium Bic" but I type in "Blue Pen" or "Bic Pen" or "Medium Blue" this won't come up. What formula could I use so that it would search the words in any order I type them.

 

Thanks in advance! 🙂

Hi @Laurinda ,

You need to make a collection as you have a many-to-many relationship - assuming here also that you have a single space between the words.

With(
   {
      wSearch:
      Split(
         YourSearchText,
         " "
      )
   },
   ClearCollect(
      colYourCollection,
      ForAll(
         wSearch,     
         LookUp(
            YourListName,
            Result in YourFieldName
         )
      )
   )
)
