Incompatibility Sort/SortbyColumns with Last/LastN?

Hi, everyone,

 

I hope you can help me with this problem. Apparently the "Sort" and/or "SortbyColumns" functions are incompatible with the "Last", or "LastN" function. Can this be? Funny thing is I haven't had any problems with it until yesterday. As of today, the latest data from SharePoint is no longer displayed in combination with "Sort and LastN". I can then search and edit them, but I can no longer see the elements directly in the APP.

 

Is this problem known to anyone?

 

SortByColumns(Schichtberichte_1;"Modified";Descending)
SortByColumns(LastN(Schichtberichte_1;5);"Modified";Descending)
LastN(SortByColumns(Schichtberichte_1;"Modified";Descending);5)

Hi @Livearus 

What if you were to call LastN on the return value of SortByColumns?

Would that be logically be the same as the result that you want?

LastN(
   SortByColumns(Schichtberichte_1;"Modified";Descending);
   5
)

Unfortunately that doesn't help either. Above I gave some examples of the tried spelling. Including your suggestion. It doesn't seem to matter whether I use "LastN" within the "Sort" or "SortbyColumns" function or around it. 😞

Hi @Livearus ,

I think you are yet another victim of this bug, but you could try this workaround

With(
   {
      wList:
      SortByColumns(
         Schichtberichte_1;
         "Modified";
         Descending
      )
   };
   LastN(wList;5)
)

Hello, please excuse the late reply. I wasn't at work.

 

Unfortunately your solution doesn't work either. In another APP which I have newly created, it works again. Very strange.
