Hi @shwetapathak,

 

Yes, take a look at the startswith (Or EndsWith) function:

EndsWith and StartsWith funcitons in PowerApps

Using this function with filter, should be able to match the corresponding string with the column specified, example:

 

Filter( Customers, StartsWith( Name, SearchInput.Text ) )

 

If you would like to search for multiple fields, take use of the search function, example:

 

Search( Table, SearchInput.Text, Column1 [, Column2, ... ] )

 

Use those formulas under the items property of the result gallery, SearchInput.Text should be TextInput Box.

 

For the filter functions, check:

Filter, Search, and Lookup functions in PowerApps

 

Regards,

Michael
