Filter a related table

I have two SQL 'one to many' linked tables.

Table 1 is "Teams."  The primary key is "ID", an integer.

Table 2 is "Members."  The one-to-many join field is "EntityID," also an integer.


I have a ComboBox that helps to look up a particular "Team." A FormViewer on the Screen shows various details for the "Team."  For testing, I have included a datacard (DataCard25) showing the "Team" ID.  


I want the Screen to show "Members" (in a table format) that are associated with the selected Team.


I have tried a couple of different approaches, using both a 'DataTable' and using a 'Gallery', to display the filtered data.  I've attempted a number of filtering formulas.  I receive notices that my formula is incorrect or delegation warnings...

                Filter('[dbo].[Members SubTable]', DataCardValue25.Text in Text(EntityID))    --Delegation

                Filter('[dbo].[Members SubTable]', DataCardValue25 = EntityID)                     --Delegation

                Filter('[dbo].[Members SubTable]', EntityID = DataCardValue25)                     --Invalid Argument


The only way I have been able to filter the table is to hard code the filter; i.e., 

               Filter('[dbo].[Members SubTable]', EntityID = 1731), where '1731' is an actual "ID" from the [dbo].

          [Teams] table.  (This works for both the datatable and gallary methods.)


Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Hi @Bubba I'm sorry to hear you're experiencing this issue. User @tchin-nin has a new blog post up with a deep dive into Delegation. I am going to include the link below. If this does not help please reply in this thread so I can find you a better solution.

Hi @Bubba


EntityID expects a number, and DataCardValue25 is a textbox. So using the Value(textbox.text) retrieves the number filled as text into the textbox.


Can you try :

Filter('[dbo].[Members SubTable]', EntityID = Value(DataCardValue25.Text))


Also, you don't need to use a textbox containing the ID, you can directly use your 'Team reference' = what you're using in the Form.Item property.
