SharePoint List Form : Sort order of Lookup column



I create SharePoint list and its Newform is customized by using PowerApps. There is a lookup field and I want to sort order.


@HCP旅行手配依頼書 is column name and 企画イベント名 is lookup column.


Ex: My Lookup data dropdown list will appear like this.






But I want to sort it like this.







Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.




New Events are added frequently, so there is no limit. Currently, we have 50+ items(events).
When we have a new event, then the original event list will be updated day by day.


@ShriniA ,

OK - was trying to find out whether you had a Delegation issue here (and you will once you get beyond 2,000 items), however 50 items will not affect this presently. So to summarise

  • You have a Single Line of Text (not calculated) field called 'Event Name' (you need to be very clear about this)
  • You have a Lookup field  企画イベント名 you want to sort on

and the code below (modified slightly here)

          企画イベント名 .Value
      Len(SortField) > 0
).'Event Name'

does not show you this field ?



I am afraid that the 'Event Name' field that you mentioned  Single Line of Text (not calculated) is not clear for me.

I know this is a very complicated situation I asked.


But anyhow I will explain why I used calculated filed for events. Because that event name will be long we combined 3 fields to Calculated text field as the event name. 

Calculated filed = Date+Event+Person Name and this field is used for a lookup field.

Hi @ShriniA ,

My reason for clarifying this goes back a couple of posts - SharePoint calculated fields rarely work properly in Power Apps and you really should not use them. You need to store that information in a Single Line of Text and then it all should work as you expect. Also as I mentioned Lookup columns will frequently cause you unwanted and unnecessary problems - I have a blog on data structure that may be useful to you.

Hi @ShriniA ,


You may consider use the 企画イベント list (Events list) directly as the Items of the Combo box, and sort the list by ID in descending at the same time.

Sort('企画イベント',ID, Descending)


The only effort you need to make is to modify the Update property of the 企画イベント DataCard so as the app can update the selected item to the LookUp column correctly:

LookUp(Choices([@HCP旅行手配依頼書].企画イベント名), Id = 企画イベント名DataCardValue.Selected.ID)
//企画イベント名DataCardValue is the Combobox for selecting events.


Hope this helps.
