Hi Community.!!


Hope all of you are well.!!


I have one field the entity called "REQUEST" where are different records and this records cointains information in one particular field called PERSONAS such as this example:


Approver, Buyer

Auditor, Approver


One record can have one Persona or a lot. In case field has more than one Persona, this will save with comas (Approver, Buyer) case has one Personas just save the name ( Approver).


I have another entity called REQ with a lot of records. Each records has one field called "Persona" and onli will be one ( for example Buyer or Approver). So, I have created a gallery to list all the records and Personas selected for the entity called REQUEST and i have added one field to count all records that have REQ. But i dont know how to do that.....



The field Personas has all the records into REQUEST with the differents Personas selected.

The field Records should show the sum of all records into REQ that have this personas ( I cant use equals because there are records into REQUEST that have 2 personas and into REQ always be 1 personas.


Thank you.!

Hi @Anonymous :

Could you tell me:

  • What is PERSONAS 's data type?Is it "text"?
  • What is Personas's data type?Is it "text"?
  • Do you want to create a gallery to display all the records in REQUEST?
  • Do you want to show the number of persons appearing in both the PERSONAS field and the REQ table?

I assume my understanding is correct.I've made a test for your reference:

Add a data table control and set it's items property to:


AddColumns(REQUEST,"REQ",CountRows(Filter(REQ ,Persona in Split(PERSONAS,","))))


The function of this formula is to add a column named "REQ" to the entity REQUEST. Save the number of eligible records in the entity REQ in the "REQ" column.

Best Regards,
