Filtering a Large data table using the filter function



I have a CDS data table with about 400,000 records and I'm trying to sort a single column. However, it seems even though the filter function is delegable, it cannot seem to filter this much data and either doesn't show anything or doesn't filter it at all. Any solutions?


@mdevaney @SeanHenderson dang, well thank you for the help cleaning up my logic a little bit. Maybe splitting the entity up into multiple entities, then create collections for each entity, filter each, then combine them in the same screen? Not even sure if this is possible.


@sandeepdknow of any work arounds?

Hi @dsipowerapps ,

Splitting your tables to various tables or using collection is a good idea.

You also consider caching the lookup tables .

Here's a similar issue for your reference:

What's more, dealing with so large data set may lead to your app bad performace.
