how to lookup second record

Hello,

 

I have two records for the same Employee's name. if i always want to lookup the second record in a table, how do i do that?

 

I tried this and it didn't work: 

 

Last(LookUp(Table1,AUTONAME_3.Text in EMP_NAME).FINAL_LOCATION)

 

Any help would be great! thank you!

In fact, I found a comma missing already 🙂

Clear(colOutput);
With(
    {FilterRecords: Filter(Table1, EMP_NAME = "MARK")},
    ForAll(FilterRecords As CoWorker,
        ForAll(Filter(Table1, RDATE = CoWorker.RDATE) As Employee,
            Collect(colOutput,
                {
                EMP_NAME: Employee.EMP_NAME,
                Location: Employee.Location
                }
            )
        )
    )
);

 Use this version instead

Lookup only returns the single, first record that matches your criteria, so you need to put a Sort on your Table1 to get that second record to the first position.

Wow thats sounds quite complicated. 

 

How about if i use a galley to show both records, can i do that? if so, what function would I use?

Yes, if you use a Filter instead of a Lookup, you can return a set of records that can be used in a gallery.

 

Using the Sort on the Lookup isn't hard once you see it. Post a bit more info about how to distinguish which of the two employee records to use and we can give you some example code.

P_3P_

 

 

Based on these two records in the same table I need to list all EMP names and FINAL location based on "MARK" which is (AUTONAME.TEXT)

 

So i need to see: 

EMP Name:   Location: 

 

AN                   P_5P_C

CAR                  P_5P_C

PU                     P_3P_

SZ                    P_3P_

 

 

any idea how to do that ?

also, I don't mind doing two galleries if that works 

I didn't realize you have two tables of employees and that one of the employees appears in both tables - have I got that right?

 

Also, are the columns exactly the same in each table? If so, put them together first with a: ClearCollect(colBigTable, Table1, Table2). Then you can sort and filter colBigTable to work with a single gallery.

 

I don't see any difference between the two records for Mark in your example above - is there another column to use to decide which record is the right one? Maybe a "date entered" column so we can use the most recent entry?

Its just one table but "mark shows up twice" and works two shifts and two groups of people. I need to list all the people that mark work with the whole day. columns are the same. 

 

Difference is the "Location" mark works in P_5P_C and P_3P_

 

sorry for the confusion 

OK, to make a list of EMP Name and Location for all people who work with Mark (and including Mark), try the following code:

Clear(colOutput);
With(
    {FilterRecords: Filter(Table1, EMP_NAME = "MARK")},
    ForAll(FilterRecords As CoWorker,
        ForAll(Filter(Table1, RDATE = CoWorker.RDATE) As Employee
            Collect(colOutput,
                {
                EMP_NAME: Employee.EMP_NAME,
                Location: Employee.Location
                }
            )
        )
    )
);

The results are stored in a collection called colOutput.

 

Is that what you are after?

Sorry I'm not a pro at power apps but where would i put this code? On a gallery option?

 

also EMP_NAME is based on the user, it automatically pulls the name so it wont always be mark. I have it based on a label "AUTONAME.TEXT"

 

For : 

 

CoWorker,
Employee.EMP_NAME,
Employee.Location

 

is that something that it will create? I don't have those specific functions 

 

thanks again for all your help!
