Hide a record in a gallery

My datasource is an excel file.  I have records being displayed in a gallery.  Each record has a "Status" column either Open or Closed.   I want to hide record(s) in the gallery if the "Status" column value is "Closed".  Right now, this is what is on my Items property:

SortByColumns(
Search(
[@LogTable],
TextSearchBox1.Text,
"DetailedDescription",
"FunctionalArea",
"Submittedby",
"ShortTitle",
"Status"
),
"Submittedby",
If(
SortDescending1,
Descending,
Ascending
)
)

Sorry for all the back and forth, I've been doing this freetext without building a test in PowerApps itself. I see another error in my code. Try this:

SortByColumns(
Search(
Filter([@LogTable],Status="Open"),
TextSearchBox1.Text,
"DetailedDescription",
"FunctionalArea",
"Submittedby",
"ShortTitle",
"Status"
)
,"Submittedby",
If(
SortDescending1,
Descending,
Ascending
)
)

You'll just need to add a filter.

 

SortByColumns(
Filter(
Search(
[@LogTable],
TextSearchBox1.Text,
"DetailedDescription",
"FunctionalArea",
"Submittedby",
"ShortTitle",
"Status"
),
"Submittedby",
If(
SortDescending1,
Descending,
Ascending
)
,Status,"Open")
)

 

@EricLott, did that and gave me bunch of errors.  Please see attached.

I see. The SortByColumns arguments got shifted when I was typing it out. Try this

SortByColumns(
Filter(
Search(
[@LogTable],
TextSearchBox1.Text,
"DetailedDescription",
"FunctionalArea",
"Submittedby",
"ShortTitle",
"Status"
)
,Status,"Open")
,"Submittedby",
If(
SortDescending1,
Descending,
Ascending
)
)

@EricLott, no error now but gallery is blank and giving me a triangular exclamation Warning: This predicate is a literal value and does not reference the input table.

Maybe we need to flip the Search and Filter functions. Try this:

SortByColumns(
Search(
Filter([@LogTable],Status,"Open"),
TextSearchBox1.Text,
"DetailedDescription",
"FunctionalArea",
"Submittedby",
"ShortTitle",
"Status"
)
,"Submittedby",
If(
SortDescending1,
Descending,
Ascending
)
)

@EricLott, still the same warning and still blank.

@EricLott, that resolves all the errors now.  appreciate your time looking into this.

I would use this,

SortByColumns(
Search(
Filter([@LogTable],Status <> "Closed"),
TextSearchBox1.Text,
"DetailedDescription",
"FunctionalArea",
"Submittedby",
"ShortTitle",
"Status"
)
,"Submittedby",
If(
SortDescending1,
Descending,
Ascending
)
)

In case you have other statuses.
