Delegation Issue w/ Filter

I added a column to my sharepoint list called Length.  This is the length of the comment field =LEN(Comments).  From here, I want to filter out anything 7 characters or below.  Filter(DataSource, Length > 7).  I'm getting an error saying Length is not a number.  However, I checked in my sharepoint list and on PowerApps (Isnumeric) and both said they were a number.  Why am I getting a delegation warning?

Edit: It works if I do Value(Length) > 7 but I get a delegation warning.

Hi @dyee4614 ,

The delegation I believe is the SharePoint calculated column itself being not delegable.

Your syntax to query it is correct.

Have you thought about simply querying the base column Length in PowerApps and testing the length of that?

@WarrenBelz  You're right.  I instantly received the delegation warning whenever I tried to use my calculated field.  I tried to do it in app to no available.  Here is what I decided to do.  I created a collection on load for the last 30 days and then used the formula above.
