formula does not return records

Hello, I have the following formula that does not give any error but does not bring me the records that I must return

I'm sure that's how the owner gets it and I know it because it works in another gallery

and the filter Approval.Status = 'Status (Approvals)'. Activate The status is fine because in the same way it is already in a gallery and works correctly

but when I want to do this in a single formula, it doesn't return the records:


SortByColumns( Filter( AddColumns('Approval Requests', "Owner_Email", AsType(Owner, Usuarios).'Correo electrónico principal'), Approval.Status = 'Status (Approvals)'.Active, Owner_Email = User().Email), "createdon", Descending)

Hi @octaking 


First try and get data in varUserObj


for that break formula up into different parts and test


Add a button - onselect for button 


Set(varuserObj,LookUp(Users,('User Name')=(varUserEmail)));


see if you get value


next try just

loading Users into a collection


then for a label text try

First(colUsers).'User Name' 

check value


Also in a label try varUserEmail and check its value


There must be something very easy that is missed




Hi @RezaDorrani 

The test brings the data we hope look


the label 1 is : First(colUser).'UserName'

the label 2 is : the variable Email

And the collection also returns of all users username

Hi @octaking 


CountRows(Filter(Users,('User Name')=(varUserEmail)))


what does this give you

CountRows (Filter (Users, ('User Name') = (varUserEmail)))

has returned me 1


and check the gallery where I want to show the data and this time if the result has returned the records I expected 🙂

I think about who activated this is:

ClearCollect (user, users)
