Filter in a Gallery

Hi,

I have 2 tables: the first one is "Employees" and the second one is "Hobbies":
 employeetable.JPG
 
hobbiestable.JPG
In PowerApps I have a Gallery (Gallery1) with the Employees that can be selected:
 gall1.JPG
 
I created a second Gallery where I want to see all the hobbies for the selected Employee:
gall2.JPG
On Items, I put the following formula, but it has an incompatibility error:
 
Filter('[dbo].[Hobbies]',EmployeeID=Gallery1.Selected.EmployeeID)
 
incompatible.JPG
 
How can I change the Filter Formula in order to avoid this error?
 
Thank you!

Hi @lstan 

Can you confirm the data types of the EmployeeID columns in your tables? For example, if Employees.EmployeeID is type int and Hobbies.EmployeeID is type nvarchar, this could result in this error.

To resolve this type of problem, you can call the Value function to convert text values to numbers.

Filter('[dbo].[Hobbies]',
         Value(EmployeeID)=Value(Gallery1.Selected.EmployeeID) 
)

Hi @timl,

 

It worked using Value() function.
