Filter sharepoint list

I have sharePoint List that has multiple columns. 

Columns: Facility, Facility Status, Address, Phone number, etc.

I want to be able to search and show all items by "Facility" column but I would like to see Items where Facility Status = "Active".


This is what I have:

SortByColumns(Search([@Facility], TextSearchBox1.Text, "Facility"), "Facility", If(SortDescending1, Descending, Ascending))


My fromula shows all the items that are "Active"and "Inactive".


Please help on configuring my formula to show only Facilities where Facility Status = "Active"


Thank you


Thanks alot!!!!!

Hi Radu, I'm still really struggling with this syntax and your solution appears to be the only one out there!


I have a Sharepoint list called Valet which is designed to book vehicle valet appointments. From this I have created a powerapp also called Valet. My Items syntax currently reads:

SortByColumns(Filter(Valet, StartsWith(RegNo, TextSearchBox1.Text)), "RegNo", If(SortDescending1, Descending, Ascending))


This searches for the RegNo just fine but my problem is that I only want to display items where Status = "Live". I have tried using your logic based on the Facility example but clearly I'm doing something wrong as all I end up with is lots of little yellow warning triangles. All of my display fields are text - no choice or drop-downs so in theory it should be very simple. Could you tell me what syntax I need? I have been tearing my hair out on this all afternoon!


Many thanks

SortByColumns(Filter(Valet, StartsWith(RegNo, TextSearchBox1.Text), Status = "Live"), "RegNo", If(SortDescending1, Descending, Ascending))

Does this work?

Hi Meneghino


Sorry to take so long to get back to you - I was away the second half of last week.


The good news is that it works! You're a star, many thanks

Can sme one help me I am trying to do close to the same thing.  I have a Title Column and a Status Column both are single line of text field.

I want to filter on Status= COMPLETE and text box search on Tilte column...the Only thing I get to work is the below the list is over 5000 item This doesn't filter on Status at all.

SortByColumns(Filter(HelpDeskTicket, StartsWith(Title, TextSearchBox1.Text&& Status="complete")), "Status", If(SortDescending1, Descending, Ascending))



Hi @jkeckard007, since both StartsWith and = are delegated then it shouldn't matter how many rows the list has.

I think you got a bracket in the wrong place, try this:

SortByColumns(Filter(HelpDeskTicket, StartsWith(Title, TextSearchBox1.Text), Status="complete")), "Status", If(SortDescending1, Descending, Ascending))

Please let me know.

PS the = operator may be case-sensitive for SP lists but I am not sure

This did not work see

 It just says starting string the function returns true if the text starts with a string and then it does not return anything.

Thank you

Maybe somebody can help me. I try to filter my Sharepoint List - cause i want only to see Entrys with Status "Offen" (means Open - this comes from an Dropdownlist in Sharepoint.


The original Source is:

SortByColumns(Filter([@Ticketliste], StartsWith(Titel, TextSearchBox1.Text)), "Title", If(SortDescending1, Descending, Ascending))


When i try this, i get an error:

SortByColumns(Filter([@Ticketliste], StartsWith(Titel, TextSearchBox1.Text), Status = "Offen"), "Title", If(SortDescending1, Descending, Ascending))


When i edit the Sharepoint list this field it shows me: ...../_layouts/15/FldEdit.aspx?List=%xxxxxxxxxxxx-D14A-4E7F-BF89-67E11C230DAF%7D&Field=jexo


How is the Syntax? Did i have to use as Name jexo or Status? How is the correct Syntax?


Thanks a lot for your help.
