I Tried every possible input found on the Web, but nothing seems to be working.

Please find the attached, to have a better understanding of the problem. and please be specific when answering as I am a new user to this program

Hi @omareisa ,

Something like this

SortByColumns(
   AddColumns(
      Filter(
         'Approvals test forms',
         StartsWith(
            Title,
            TextSearchBox1.Text
         )
      ),
      "SortOrder",
      Switch(
         Status,
         "New",
         1,
         "Pending",
         2,
         "Approved",
         3,
         "Rejected",
         4
      )
   ),
   "SortOrder"
)

That did not work, I believe there is a bigger problem in my code which I can not seem to find, 

Switch(
Status,
"New,
1,
"Pending",
2,
"Approved",
3,
"Rejected",
4
)
),
"SortOrder"
)

all of these are errors

Also please note, the type of column Status is (Choice) in SharePoint

Hi @omareisa ,

If Status is a Choice column, you should need

SortByColumns(
   AddColumns(
      Filter(
         'Approvals test forms',
         StartsWith(
            Title,
            TextSearchBox1.Text
         )
      ),
      "SortOrder",
      Switch(
         Status.Value,
         "New",
         1,
         "Pending",
         2,
         "Approved",
         3,
         "Rejected",
         4
      )
   ),
   "SortOrder"
)
