Using Combobox Multi Select values in Labels and Gallery Filter

Hi There,


I have searched high and low for a direct answer to this question but cannot seem to get a direct response. 

My proposed app is meant to be database which holds the main information for our past projects.

For Scope, Services and Contract Type, they are all Multi-Select choices.

My first (small) issue arises when trying to display the data in a text field. 

I am currently using the code below to display the field on a label. 


Concat(Scope.Value,Concatenate(Text(Value),"     "))

It works no worries, but I wonder if there is another (more simple) way around this? ie. When using a Form, the datacard value for scope is simply (below), yet when I try to use this in a label text field it does not work.

Choices('Subsea Database'.Scope)



My second (major) issue is the ability to filter a gallery using the scope column. 

I have no issues filtering when there is only a singular option, but do not seem to be able to make it work when there is multiple selections. The code I am trying to use is as follows.


Filter('Subsea Database', Scope in  ScopeBox.SelectedItems)

**Note: I understand the in function has delegation limitations however this app will only have about 100-200 rows MAX**

My ultimate aim is to be able to have search functionality which resembles something below. I understand that my Gallery Items formula will most likely be massive as it will be a collection of the above Filter functions.

If someone can guide me to what nested filter functions and the correct way to write them for using multi-selected items and correct order for allowing multiple combobox filters that would be greatly appreciated!

If I have missed anything please feel free to let me know, have only been using PowerApps/Sharepoint for 2 weeks.


Kind Regards,


Dane Colman

Re: Using Combobox Multi Select values in Labels and Gallery Filter

Managed to solve the multiple selection drop down boxes

This is what I was originally doing.

......Scope in  ScopeBox.SelectedItems

This is what was needed to fix it -.-

.... ScopeBox.Selected in Scope


Filter('Subsea Database', ScopeBox.Selected in Scope)

Calls the filter for multiple checked items.


However, I still can't filter for Drop Downs with only one selection. 

I am unsure as to what function is neccessary.
