Error - The $filter expression must evaluate to a single boolean value

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
)

Re: Error - The $filter expression must evaluate to a single boolean value

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)?

@warren

 

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.

 

Issue
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
)
