Mutiple Select Filter Not picking up individual selected Items

New poster here! My PowerApps experience has been a "trial by fire" but has been a lot of fun. I have relied on this forum rather heavily for assistance and it has been wonderful. I have come to a point though were I am running into some issues and I can not seem to find the answer. Below is the background on what I am trying to do right now:


I have a multi-select column which is setup as a Choice column in SharePoint. This column contains country information. For example a record could have just USA or could have both USA and UK.  I am tying to create a screen that allows a user to utilize a combo box to select a region and/or regions and return the results in a data table. 



If a user selects multiple values i.e. USA and UK it will not return any results with both. If a user selects only one country, it will return only records with that country included in a multiple country record and not by itself. For example, if user selects USA it will only return those records with USA and some other country i.e. USA and UK not records with just USA.  Below are some of the formulas:

  1.  Data Table Column Jurisdiction Text PropertyConcat(Column,Value," ,")
  2.  Data Table Items PropertyFilter(Source,If(IsBlank(JurisdictionCMB.Selected.Value),true,
           Concat(Sort(JurisdictionCMB.SelectedItems,Value)," ,") in Concat(Sort('Jurisdiction',Value),Value," ,")))
    1. Note: I sorted the values as I found that sometime things could show up as USA,UK or UK,USA.

Any assistance or further information that you may need, please let me know. I appreciate any help on this that I can get.

Hi @Anonymous ,

The fundamental issue with your model is exactly what you are finding - the In function looks at a string contained in another string and if you have multiple value, it will look for all of this as a single string. I have actually spent some time on it and cannot find any way to set a filtered property of a data table to look at multiple values from a drop down. I will tag one of my code gurus @Eelman for any clues, but in the meantime, you might watch this video from Reza Dorrani, which shows some possibilities (not exactly yours) using a gallery.

Thank you for the reply! I was actually able to get this working today, so I will post a solution. It took a good amount of trouble shooting. Hopefully this will help others.
