Hi @Jeronimo

 

Please use double semi-colons (";;"). The semicolon will act as a comma (",") depending on your locale, so the double semicolon will act as a regular escaped semicolon. Below is the correct formula:

 

Patch(Company;Defaults(Company); {Name: "Company" }) ;; Back(Fade)

Please let us know if you have any further issues.

Hi

 

As I know,

- Patch(Company;Defaults(Company); {Name: "Company" }) ; Back(Fade)

is usally written as

- Patch(Company, Defaults(Company), {Name: "Company" }) ; Back(Fade)

 

That's using

- , inside Patch

- ; for more than one function, working in sequential route.

 

Hope it clarifies your need.

@hpkeong thank you in advance if you have a moment to think this over; my issue is very similar to the OP.

 

I have a gallery that needs to run two functions: Filter, and SortbyColumns. Individually, each of the formulas works, but won't combine successfully. My reference is the MSFT Doc linked below to make sure I'm using the correct operator (I'm going with semicolon).

 

SortByColumns(Stakeholders,"LastName",Ascending) ;
Filter(Stakeholders, SearchBar.Text in 'Full Name')
 
The function is set to the Items for the gallery. Reference: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/functions/operators
 
Thanks again @hpkeong or anyone else who sees this! (Side note although my avatar might suggest I'm a Microsoft employee, I'm only using a partner account to post this).
