Want to use Sort first and then Filter

HI All,

I have a gallery that I filter on through a search box. I would like the gallery to have a default sort order, though. The filter works just fine:

If(ddlSearchType.Selected.Value = "Customer Name", Filter('SharePointDataSource', txtSearch.Text in Customer_x0020_Name ), ddlSearchType.Selected.Value = "Resolved Status", Filter('SharePointDataSource', txtSearch.Text in Resolved.Value),ddlSearchType.Selected.Value = "Corporate Account Manager", Filter('SharePointDataSource', txtSearch.Text in CAM_x0020_on_x0020_Account.Value), ddlSearchType.Selected.Value = "Invoice Number", Filter('SharePointDataSource', txtSearch.Text in Invoice_x0020_Number), ddlSearchType.Selected.Value = "Regional Director", Filter('SharePointDataSource', txtSearch.Text in Regional_x0020_Director.Value), ddlSearchType.Selected.Value = "Working Status", Filter('SharePointDataSource', txtSearch.Text in Working_x0020_Status.Value), ddlSearchType.Selected.Value = "Account Coordinator", Filter('SharePointDataSource', txtSearch.Text in A_x002f_C.Value))

However, I'd like to sort first by Account Coordinator (A_x002f_C.Value) in ascending and when I try to add a Sort field to the front of the expression, I get errors. How can I add Sort to the expression above so I can Sort and then Filter?

Re: Want to use Sort first and then Filter

Hi,

 

I just want to sort by one column, but also to use the filter. I'd like it to sort by that one column and then filter, but when I try to add sort I get errors. I've added Sort to the beginning of the filter and then the value and ascending to the end, as so:

Sort(If(ddlSearchType.Selected.Value = "Customer Name", Filter('Universal Dispute Log', txtSearch.Text in Customer_x0020_Name ), ddlSearchType.Selected.Value = "Resolved Status", Filter('Universal Dispute Log', txtSearch.Text in Resolved.Value),ddlSearchType.Selected.Value = "Corporate Account Manager", Filter('Universal Dispute Log', txtSearch.Text in CAM_x0020_on_x0020_Account.Value), ddlSearchType.Selected.Value = "Invoice Number", Filter('Universal Dispute Log', txtSearch.Text in Invoice_x0020_Number), ddlSearchType.Selected.Value = "Regional Director", Filter('Universal Dispute Log', txtSearch.Text in Regional_x0020_Director.Value), ddlSearchType.Selected.Value = "Working Status", Filter('Universal Dispute Log', txtSearch.Text in Working_x0020_Status.Value), ddlSearchType.Selected.Value = "Account Coordinator", Filter('Universal Dispute Log', txtSearch.Text in A_x002f_C.Value)),A_x002f_C.Value, Ascending)

However, I get errors with this and it is probably something I'm missing!

Re: Want to use Sort first and then Filter

Hello,

 

Have you tried embedding the Sort function? The Sort function works on one column at a time. So to sort on 2 columns (CustomerNumber and OrderDate in the Orders table), the following would work:

 

Sort( Sort( Orders, CustomerNumber ), OrderDate )

 

Hope this helps.
