Max Name Items

I have an Excel form like this


ID | Names | Items

1 | Jack | 17

2 | Tim | 40

3 | Tim | 56

4 | Jack | 34

5 | Jack | 12

6 | Tim | 97

 

and I want to set Jack's least amount of items to a variable but I can't get the code right.
Set(leastAmountOfItems,min(lookup(Table1,Names = jack)),Items) or something like this.

nope didn't work says:

Behavior function in a non-behavior property. You can't use this property to change values elsewhere in the app.

 

Also, will this work if "item" is "price"? example: 12.57

Alternatively just put this code in the Text property without SET

 

Min(Filter(Table1,Names = "Jack"),Items)

It works.  You are getting an error because you can only put it in the properties OnSelect, OnVisible, OnChange, OnStart.
