Trouble with IF & IsBlank expressions on dropdown columns. Any inputs please.
I get this weird runtime error:
The requested operation is invalid. Server Response: The $filter expression must evaluate to a single boolean value.
LookUp( AddColumns( Distinct( Filter( Positiondata, If(IsBlank(DataCardValue14_1.Selected.Value), Blank(), "'JobFamily'= DataCardValue14_1.Selected.Value") ), Job_code ).Result, "Count", CountRows( Filter( Positiondata, Job_code = Result ) ) ), Count = Max(Count), Result )
HI @gotovamsee ,
Without looking at anything else for the moment, what does the Blank() propose to do? Should it not be testing a field - IsBlank(FieldName)?
I expect the Blank() expression to help me with ignoring the second matching input whenever the dropdown selection is blank on DC Value10. I could get past that and now held with another runtime error that looks like this.
The requested operation is invalid. Server Response: A binary operator with incompatible types was detected. Found operand types 'Edm.Boolean' and 'Edm.String' for operator kind 'And'.
Here is the updated code.
LookUp( AddColumns( Distinct( Filter( Positiondata, 'Position Title' = DataCardValue9_1.Text, If(IsBlank(DataCardValue10_1.Text), Blank(), "'Country' = DataCardValue10_1.Text") ), Job_code ).Result, "Count", CountRows( Filter( Positiondata, Job_code = Result ) ) ), Count = Max(Count), Result )
