i've two problems with a datatable in a simple powerapp based on an ExcelSheet. Only 5 Fields from the table : Name1, Name2, Country, ZIP, City.


In the app a selection (dropdown) for country and a field for filtering Name1


The datatable is sorted and filtered by Country and Field-Startswith

      Sort(Filter(Kunden; Staat = fStaatKurz.Text && StartsWith(Name1; TextInput1.Text)); Name1; Ascending)

This is a confirmed bug that is affecting all 2.0.69 installations.  Another thread is covering this as well -- we need Microsoft support for this issue ASAP.


In the meantime, I would recommend rolling back to 2.0.68 if possible.

Today I added some functionality to my production app, but didn't go anywhere near the screen with the data table. Still, all the settings of the DT disappeared! I'm not doing anything fancy with the DT, just displaying four columns for all the records with a search term. When the DT isn't reset, it works well...


When will you fix this serious bug?
