Problem with function Search

Hello everyone,


I want to use the Search function by connecting an Excel online Data Source(named Table1) but I have the following error message : 




Here's the formula I use :


Search(Table1,'Barre de recherche'.Text,"Chef de projet","Code Projet")


Thanks for your help.

Open the table in Excel and make sure that the table does not contain any calculated fields.   Restrict the field types to Text, Number and Date/Time.  Rename the field headings so they do not contain spaces.   Make sure the first line in the table contains data in every field.  Save and close the Excel file.  In PowerApps, delete the table from the Data Sources and reimport it as a new datasource. 

Then watch Shane Young's video "Excel is a terrible data source":
