Power Apps Choice field Allow Searching

I am trying to allow my end user to search for any text in the field but it is only searching the text she types left to right instead of returning all text in the search field. In the picture attached, you can see I'm searching for meijer, but I would like to be able to type in #021 and have it get the same thing.

I have changed the combo box items to us a sort and then a choices command to get the desired results. The below format is what I used.

 

Sort(Choices([@DumpRecords].'Location Name'),ThisItem.'Location Name'.Value,Ascending)

Hi @HubbardInc ,

 

Power Apps combobox will allow you to search any text in the field, my sample below

and make sure you enable allow searching option

Unfortunately, it is a combo box, and i have selected allow searching. However, it is still not working.

Do verify if both of the fields are pointing to the same

if both are pointing the same, please remove and add it back. sometimes due to customizations it will behave the same, re-adding should work.

may also mention that it is a sharepoint list that this combo box is referencing.

I am able to search any text now by adding a data source and adding the other data tables and then using that source as my combo box items. However, now I cannot seem to get it to save the selected items. 2022-07-18 10_21_31-Power Apps.png2022-07-18 10_21_23-Power Apps.png
