Try to filter a datatable by using a listbox with multiple choices

Hi there,

i have a listbox "lstAuswahl" (SelectMultiple=True) that is filled by using this expression:

Items: Choices(Auszubildende.AP2_Zeitraum)


I want to filter a datatable accordingly to the one or more selected values in the listbox.

Using this for the items-property in the datatable: 

Filter(Auszubildende;AP2_Zeitraum in lstAuswahl.Selected.Value) does not work.

The result is an empty table.


What is wrong?

Hoping for help!









Ah, okay - that's it! With this option it works.

Thank you very much for your help and your time!

May i ask you two more questions regarding this issue?

1) Datatable

In the column AP1_Zeitraum i can see no values. I just see [object Object]. Is there a way to solve this?


2) "Reverse" multiple selection

I have a similar situation: The colum in the sp-list is a choice column with "allow multiple selection = no".

The listbox i use allows multiple selection. What woul be the solution then?


Hi @JürgenD,


Set the Text property as below:


For the second question, it is easier than the original one.

Set the DataTable Items property as below:

Filter(SPList,Choice.Value in ListBox1.SelectedItems.Value)



Best Regards,

Thank you very much again!

Now my (powerapps) problems are solved and i can go on.

Good to know there are helpful persons like you!
