SumIF in PowerApps (Filtering Issue)

Hi.  This is a basic problem but I'm having trouble with it.  I want to create a sumif but my knowledge of the filter function isn't that great so I keep running into some dumb error.  Here is the formula as I understand it.

 

Sum(Filter(Data1,Multipack = "Yes").Units)

 

The error is "expected a text value".   This doesn't make sense to me as multipack is a text field and "Yes" is a text value.  I've run into issues like this in the past so an explanation of the error and what it means would be really helpful for me to avoid it in the future.  Thank you.

Hi @dyee4613 ,

Please try this formula:

Sum(Filter(Data1,Multipack = "Yes"),Units)

The right synax of sum is:

sum(table,formula)

Here's a doc for your reference:

Re: SumIF in PowerApps (Filtering Issue)

Hi @dyee4613  

is the Multipack a choice field i SharePoint list?  Then your have to change your like this Sum(Filter(Data1,Multipack.Value="Yes"),Units)

 

I hope this will work for you.

Kind Regards

Your solution worked!  I guess a comma was what I needed.  I could have swore I tried that but I guess not, thank you!  It was with an excel sheet, not a sharepoint list.
