Search and filter a gallery on SharePoint multi Lookup column AND Text column

I've tried a million variations on this yesterday and today -- some way more complex.  I can get individual pieces working but never everything together.  So, I've simplified this for the sake of asking this question. 

I want to be able to search on multiple fields -- some fields are text fields which work fine.  However, other fields are multiple choice  fields that are sourced from a lookup field in a SharePoint list. 

 

I've used the below formula to create a label to show the items selected from the lookup which are noted above the gold bar.   

Left(Concat(ThisItem.ERG,Value & ", "),Len(Concat(ThisItem.ERG,Value & ", "))-2)

 

The items just above the gold bar are from the multiple choice field that I want to include in my search but are not currently a part of my formula. 

 

My search formula is shown in the image and is also noted here.  

If(IsBlank(txtInpSearch.Text), colResources,Filter(colResources,txtInpSearch.Text in Concatenate(Title, " ", Description," ")))

 

Can anyone tell me how to include all these fields in a filter, search combination?  

 

Thanks so much!

Hi @CindyZ ,

Do you want to add the multiple Choice filed filter in your existing Filter formula?

How do you want to filter against your Multiple Choice field? Based on the Text Search Box or a Dropdown box?

 

If you want to add the multiple Choice field filter in your existing Filter formula, please consider try the following formula:

Filter(
       colResources,
       If(
          IsBlank(txtInpSearch.Text),
          true,
          txtInpSearch.Text in Concatenate(Title, " ", Description," ") || txtInpSearch.Text in Concat(ERG, Value & ", ")
       )
)

 

If you want to filter your Multiple Choice field based on a selected Dropdown value (I assume the default value in the Dropdown box is '- Select -'), please try the following formula:

Filter(
       colResources,
       If(
          IsBlank(txtInpSearch.Text),
          true,
          txtInpSearch.Text in Concatenate(Title, " ", Description," ")
       ),
       If(
          Dropdown1.Selected.Value = "- Select -",
          true,
          Dropdown1.Selected.Value in Concat(ERG, Value & ", ")
       )
)

Hi @CindyZ 

It looks like you are working with a collection, hence, the colprefix so

 

If(IsBlank(txtInpSearch.Text), 
    colResources,
       Search(
              colResources,txtInpSearch.Text, "Title","Description"
        )
)

 

you can use use the Search() function to match text in any field you select in the collection.
