Re: help with CDS 2.0

Hi @antonio_piernav ,

 

Did you mean that you want to count how many records have the same value in PowerApps? If so, you can use the GroupBy function to group your table by that variable, and then use the CountRows function to calculate the number of items on each group. You could first collect the data to a collection. 

For example, the collection is called 'coll', and the name of the column that has the sample data is 'Name', then the expression below will give you a table that has a column for the name and another with the count of items of that name.

AddColumns(
    GroupBy(coll, "Name", "ByName"),
    "Count",
    CountRows(ByName))
