SortBy Column - Descending Not Working

I've got a Gallery. I'd like it sorted by Compliance Status column, descending. I've entered the following. Yet, the one 'Certified' keep popping to the top. Any ideas what may be stopping the filter from working?


SortByColumns(Filter(Collection, FullNm=MmbrFullNmDD.Selected.FullNm),"ComplianceStatus",Descending)

Try this:

Sort(Filter(Collection, FullNm=MmbrFullNmDD.Selected.FullNm),Trim(ComplianceStatus),Descending)

Try this if previous dont work,


Sort(Filter(Collection, FullNm=MmbrFullNmDD.Selected.FullNm),ComplianceStatus,Descending)


Using sort only and removing double quotes as you don't have special character in column/field name. If present then put it in single quotes.

Both return the same result as the original.

The "Driver Operator, Pumper - Date: 10/26/2012 - Status: Certified"  is always on top.


What I really want to do is every time the DD changes a query and filter of the Member Training list - by Member UnqID - of all of the Member's certs and quals.


If any of the Member's certs and quals are 'Noncompliant' on the Member Training list the Toggle by default will be set to the 'Inactive' position. This should happen every time the DD changes.
