Multiple search using Split

Hi,
i really need your help talking about this script provided in this post

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Using-PowerApps/Search-with-multiple-words-in-multiple-columns/t....

I am trying to use the script provided in this solution but is not working really well, it shows that search only by the first information provided and is not allowing to search by more than one field.

If I search for example only putting one product code works but if I put 2 coded separated by space is not showing anything like image attached.

My code:
Filter(
AddColumns(
ProductsDatas;
"busca";
Sum(
ForAll(
Split(TextInput1.Text; " ");
Find(Result; new_name)
);
Value
)
);
busca = CountRows(Split(TextInput1.Text; " "))
)

 

 I am searching in a textbox by 2 productcodes separated by space but is not showing result on my datasource table, it shows only if I filter by only one product code.

Someone can help me finding a solution for that?

It seems to me that the referenced thread is about searching multiple strings that all match within a single record. The "busca" part is about counting how many matches there are in a given record, and the filter excludes those that are not matching all words. 

On the other hand, if I'm understanding, you want to match records that contain any (not all) of the words in the search box. There is probably a simpler way but I think if you replace "busca = CountRows(Split(TextInput1.Text; " "))" with "busca > 0" your code will work.

It works perfectly, thanks a lot for this help.
