Gallery Row Duplication

I have a Gallery on a collection with a working search str that limits the results in based on StartsWith function.


My problem is that the column I am searching on is distinct (lets say list of ZIP Codes), but once it matches to a record, the whole Gallery display is just a list of the same row repeatedly


so if you search for 90210 the data table returns 12 rows with 90210..

Not applicable

Can you post the exact code you use to limit the results with StartsWith?

Hi @rhalabicki,


I guess that you are using Distinct inside the Filter function, that's the reason why it returns multiple duplicated record. You should use Filter inside the Distinct functions. But notice that Distinct returns a one-column table that contains the results, with duplicate values removed. That means that in Distinct(Filter(Table,formula),ColumnName) only "ColumnName" column would return. 


I just create the below collection:


And this formula works:

Distinct(Filter(C, StartsWith(Name,TextInput1.Text)) ,Name)

I'm confused though, the gallery data is distinct on its own.



Adding distinct breaks the "Items".
