Filter data in Gallery using Enum field



I have data source PurchaseOrderHeader for my powerApps, I want to filter data in Gallery based on one field of type ENUM namely PurchaseOrderStatus, suggest me how do I achieve this.

I tried this code but its throwing error

Filter(PurchaseOrderHeader,PurchaseOrderStatus = "Ordered")

Hi @Gautam,


Could you please share a bit more about the PurchaseOrderHeader data source within your app?

Could you please share a bit more about the ENUM type column that you mentioned? Is it a Choice type column in SP list?


Please take a try to modify your formula as below:

Filter(PurchaseOrderHeader,PurchaseOrderStatus.Value= "Ordered")

then check if the issue is solved on your side.


If you could provide more details about your scenario, we could provided a proper workaround for you.


Best regards,

I know this thread is old but i'm facing a similar issue where I am not able to filter on Enums using the Dynamics Finance and Operations Connector (using CDS is not an option). In my App I have the following filter


Filter(Datasource,EnumField= "Null")


In this case Invoice is a custom Enum field. I get the following: An error has occurred. A binary operator with incompatible types was detected. Found operand types 'Microsoft.Dynamics.DataEntities.EnumField' and 'Edm.String' for operator kind 'NotEqual'.


I have seen a solution posted to convert the enumfield into a string to compare however this will make the query  non-delegatable and therefore is not an acceptable solution.


I know the correct Odata Syntax for this however I can't seem to cast the "Null" string as the enum type through the filter function.


Is there a way to filter on Enums using the finance and operations connector and still maintain delegation?
