Unexpected characters and Invalid number of arguments on combobox that works fine

I have a combobox with the following code for items:

Combobox_CTC_4.Items=

Filter(
    Sort(_ChargeTypes, ChargeTypeCode),
    ChargeGroupCode = First(ComboBox_CGC.SelectedItems).Result
)

_ChargeTypes is a collection that looks something like this:

The items in Combobox_CTC_4 are filtered so their ChargeGroupCode matches the ChargeGroupCode picked in another combobox (Combobox_CGC).

 

I get 2 errors on Combobox_CTC_4:

  • Unexpected characters. The formula contains 'ParenClose' where 'Eof' is expected.
    Location: Combobox_CTC_4.SearchItems
  • Invalid number of arguments: received 1, expected 3 or more. 
    Location: Combobox_CTC_4.SearchItems

The weird thing is, the combobox functions properly. I still get the little red error icon next to the combobox, but I go into the code and there are no red underlines anywhere.

I've tried saving and restarting the studio but it still remains...

Re: Unexpected characters and Invalid number of arguments on combobox that works fine

There are few things I am not placing but one thing I know right off is your order is off. Sort goes before Filter and also I don't see where you are telling it what to sort by and Ascending or Descending either.

 

It goes like this:

 

Sort(Filter(DataSoure, Column1="FilterInfo"),"ColumnSortedBy",Ascending)

What is the formula for the Items property of ComboBox_CGC?

Re: Unexpected characters and Invalid number of arguments on combobox that works fine

Thank you @rebeccas, switching the order of Sort and Filter fixed it. 

P.S.
I was sorting the collection _ChargeTypes by the column ChargeTypeCode. Also, I left out Ascending/Descending because it defaults to Ascending.

New Code:

Sort(
    Filter(_ChargeTypes, ChargeGroupCode = First(ComboBox_CGC.SelectedItems).Result),
    ChargeTypeCode
)
