Exclude multiple values from the same column in a collection

Hi everyone,


I want to exclude specific values in a column from a collection. In the example below I want to exclude any records with a status of “02. Rejected” and “11. Closed”.




I am aware it is possible to do this by creating a separate collection of the values I want to exclude, and then use that collection as the filter parameter:


ClearCollect(collectExcludedOptions, ["02. Rejected","11. Closed"]);

ClearCollect(FilteredDataSource, Filter(DataSource,Not(Validation_Status in collectExcludedOptions.Value)))


Is there a simpler method? E.g. ClearCollect(FilteredDataSource, Filter(DataSource, Validation_Status NOT {“02. Rejected”, “11. Closed})))


best regards,

Hi @Amik ,


My preference would be using a full collection and apply filter in your gallery. A full collection makes sure you have all the information, but you can process the data using filter in any of your screen, this will save your time and reduce your confusion.

In this context this is not option, because users do not need to see any records with those status types On Start of the app
