(=) suddenly Invalid argument

Suddenly most of the galleries and text items where filter and count formulas are used stopped working. It shows nothing and a warning states "Invalid argument type" where the "=" syntax is used. I.e CountIf('Open Critical Incidents',Status="Active") and Filter(Messages,Visibility="Visible"). Source is Sharepoint online lists.

 

My whole app is now not working cause of this error. It stopped working without me doing any change to the source or to the app,

You can try like this

 

CountIf('Open Critical Incidents',Status.Value="Active") and Filter(Messages,Visibility.Value="Visible").

 

You need to add .Value property. Hope this will works for you

Hi

 

Too bad!

May you try remove the files, and Add again?

If not, try to re-create table and add again.

It may due to datasources corruption, as it happened to me before.

 

Thanks

Hi, what do you mean by remove files? I have tried to remove connections and added them again, with no luck. The strange part is also that if I remove the filter in a gallery, the list shows all fine. So connections are working.

You can try like this

 

CountIf('Open Critical Incidents',Status.Value="Active") and Filter(Messages,Visibility.Value="Visible").

 

You need to add .Value property. Hope this will works for you

Thanks, the .Value worked!

Strange that things like this just happens. Someone must have change the syntax qualifier.

Some additional information.  This happened to me when the data source was a SharePoint list and the SharePoint column type was defined as "Custom (menu to choose from)."  In that case, adding .Value fixed the problem.  SharePoint columns that were "Single line of text" continued to work without the .Value qualifier.  Adding .Value to a field derived from a "Single line of text column" generated an error.  Last week both Custom and Single Line Text fields worked properly without the qualifier.  In addition, the problem not only occurs with the comparisons operator (=) but also with the Text attribute of text fields. 

When I add the .value, I get the next error: invalid use of '.'

 

[code]

If(type.Value="All",Tickets,If(type.Value="Tickets older than 3 days", Filter(Tickets,   DateCreated <> datetype && DateCreated <> Text(Today()), DateCreated <> Text(DateAdd(Today(), -2)),DateCreated <> Text(DateAdd(Today(), -1))|| DateClosed <> datetype && DateClosed <> Text(Today()), DateClosed <> Text(DateAdd(Today(),-2)),DateClosed <> Text(DateAdd(Today(), -1))),If(type.Value="Tickets opened today",Filter(Tickets,datetype in DateCreated),If(type="Tickets closed today",Filter(Tickets,datetype in DateClosed),Filter(Tickets,type.Value in Status)))))

[/code]
