Filter results empty - Delegation issue ?


I am filtering a sharepoint list column call Title using


SortByColumns(Filter([@'200722_RAY_DD_LTO_DB'], StartsWith(CONTENU DISQUE TextSearchBox1.Text)), "CONTENU DISQUE", If(SortDescending1, Descending, Ascending))


The CONTENU DISQUE column contains long lists of text. The photos shows an example of very short lists. There are about 600 column entries, but the text content of each cell maybe a hundred times more characters.

My goal is to filter the CONTENU DISQUE for key words.


I have set the delegation settings to 1000. The app works if I change the filter to a short number / text entry.


I do not understand if the delegation issue is due to the number of characters per cell or the number of cells.


Should I consider another data source than sharepoint?

Any help most welcome

Hi @ChLowden ,

Firstly, I have done a blog on Delegation which may explain the issue to you, but you do not need any of the workarounds mentioned in it. If you: -

  • Have your limit set to something always bigger than the row numbers in the table
  • Do not want to see a Delegation warning
  • Want to look for "keywords" anywhere in 'CONTENU DISQUE'

try this

      TextSearchBox1.Text in 'CONTENU DISQUE'

Hello Warren

Thank you for taking the time.

Sadly, I was errors everywhere but all looks good to me.

Please attach a screen capture . Maybe you can tell me where I am going wrong.
