## Independent filtering and sorting of a Gallery

Hi,

I want to filter and sort my gallery.

My filter options are: All, Having comment, Being Overdue,  Having follow up date. The chosen option is put into a variable FilterVar

Also I want to sort: Invoice date, Due date, Amount, Follow up date. The chosen option is put into a variable SortVar

From my mathematical understanding there are 16 combinations.

My idea was to first apply the filter statement to the item gallery and then as a chained command the sort statement

If(FilterVar=1; Sammlung2; If(FilterVar=2; Filter(Sammlung2; !IsBlank(Bemerkung)); If(FilterVar=3; Filter(Sammlung2; Delta>14))));; Sorting...

But this does not work.

I understand that I could use nested filtering and sorting. However, this would be a very big expression (16 combinations).

Any ideas, how to make this happen in a nice way?

Thx Christian

Your approach is a bit off.

Try something like this:

``````SortByColumns(
Filter(
Sammlung2
,Or(
FilterVar = 1
,And(FilterVar = 2, !IsBlank(Bemerkung))
,And(FilterVar=3, Delta>14)
)

)
, SortVar
, Ascending
)``````

Hope this helps you solve this.

Hi,

The only way I can think of is the nesting solution way. I would give that a try and if it doesn't work for you I would consider opening a ticket with Microsoft Support. Unfortunately it is fairly uncommon that someone wants to filter as much as you. I will include a link below; on how to open a ticket with Microsoft Support. Otherwise if any other communities members might know feel free to chime in.

If you would like to create a ticket with Microsoft Customer Support here is a link on how to do so: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-platform/admin/get-help-support

Regards,

Alex

Hi Paul,

great, I did not know the SortByColumn function which allows for filtering and sorting independently. This is what I needed 🙂

Thx Chris
