Error: Unexpected characters. 'ParenClose' where 'Eof' is expected for combo-box


I have a powerapps form linked to sharepoint.

I have a combo-box that reads data from SQL. The combo box has below formula on the items.

Filter(VW_ANC_WorkerPositionRate, REVPROJID = ComboBox1.Selected.PROJECTID),
Filter(VW_ANC_ProjectStaging, REVPROJID <> ComboBox1.Selected.PROJECTID)

However, when I change the combo box property to Allow Searching - it shows error - "the formula contains parenclose where eof is expected powerapps".

Please help.

Your Formula did not show any I suppose you excluded them in your post and discovered them as an issue.


Comments can be in-line (at the end of a line) and proceeded with //

Or an entire block can be commented with the start of the block containing a /* and the end of the block containing a */
