Filter Gallery Using Distinct Dropdown

Hi,

 

Still very new to this and cannot seem to figure out how to do it!

So I have a single gallery displaying data from a sharepoint list. I can filter that gallery using four dropdown boxes using the following formula which works fine:

 

Filter(SPList,County = Dropdown1.Selected.County,YOB = Dropdown2.Selected.YOB,Ethnicity = Dropdown3.Selected.Ethnicity,Connection = Dropdown4.Selected.Connection)

The issue is that the options in the dropdowns themselves contain multiple values where I only need to display one.

I tried using the following Distinct formula on each dropdown box which works fine:

 

Distinct(Stories_1,County)

Problem is this then breaks the gallery filter formula - what do I need to change here?

 

Thanks in advance!

Re: Filter Gallery Using Distinct Dropdown

When using the Distinct function, it changes the resulting column name to Result instead of what it used to be. That means that for each Dropdown that uses a Distinct formula, the reference would end in “Result”. So for Dropdown1, it would be Dropdown1.Selected.Result instead of Dropdown1.Selected.Country. Changing this for each Dropdown that uses a Distinct function should get your Filter working.

Heya,

 

When you make them distinct, they dont have other values like YOB, they are just a list of distinct values, so they will probably be Dropdown1.Selected.Result etc etc

No worries!

 

And yeah I forgot that it's .Result not .Value - Have updated my first answer to .Result 🙂
