Search Multiple Columns - Text & Choice

Hi Folks -


I have a search box and galley set up on one of my form. I've also enabled it where the user can search multple fields as well. Here is my formula:

		StartsWith(Alias, TextSearchBox4.Text) || 
		StartsWith(Name, TextSearchBox4.Text) ||
		StartsWith(Target_x0020_Short_x0020_Name, TextSearchBox4.Text) ||
		StartsWith(Brand_x0020_Name, TextSearchBox4.Text) ||
		StartsWith(PF_Research_Code, TextSearchBox4.Text) ||
		StartsWith(Generic_x0020_Name, TextSearchBox4.Text) ||
		StartsWith(Development_Name, TextSearchBox4.Text) ||
		StartsWith(Alternate_Name, TextSearchBox4.Text) && !(Portfolio_x0020_Status.Value="Terminated")), 
		"Alias", If(SortDescending1, Descending, Ascending)

It's currently sorted by "Alias" (which is a text field), however I need to add one more column to sort by : Portfolio_x0020_Status

The issue is the Portfolio_x0020_Status is a choice field and it's not liking any formula. Can somene give me some pointers on how to add Portfolio_x0020_Status to my above formula?

Thank you!




Randy, please excuse me. My network must have been slow/disconnected as I relaunch the app and now your formula works. Let me add it to the respective Forms and report back if i have issues.


Thank you so much!!!


No problem!  My favorite kind of that resolves itself!
