StartsWith syntax

I am trying to create a filter in gallery using StartsWith but I am having an error with a column from my datasource (Sharepoint Library). The column "BU Scope" that i want to use is a lookup field.

 

 

When i try to use the field "BU Scope" it returns an error message like this:

Re: StartsWith syntax

Hi @karl_oliverio ,

Is the "BU Scope" column a LookUp type column in your SP Library?

 

Based on the formula that you mentioned, I think there is something wrong with it. The first argument of the StartsWith function is required to provide a Text type column. The LookUp column (Complex type column) is not supported within StartsWith function.

 

As an alternative solution, please consider take a try with the following workaround:

Set the Items property of the Gallery to following:

Filter(
         AddColumns('YourSPLibrary', "BUScopeValue", BU_x0020_Scope.Value),
         StartsWith(BUScopeValue, TextInput1_2.Text)
)

Please consider take a try with above solution, check if the issue is solved.

Hi @karl_oliverio 

 

Try BU_x0020_Scope.Value since it is a lookup column

Re: StartsWith syntax

Thanks @v-xida-msft it works for me. I made the field dropdown instead of textfield, now im having a problem because when the app loads, it automatically filters the gallery based on the default value on my dropdown. How can I clear the value of the dropdown on page load?
