Re: the property expects Text values, but this rule produces incompatible Record values

Tom, that works for items selected in gallery, but what if you want to filter the gallery by wether a column called "Team" contains User().Fullname. This column could either be a 'People' column or a lookup column which references a list of staff in another list.

 

I can only get the filter to work if the people column does not allow multiple values, for example:

SortByColumns(Filter(Participants, Team.DisplayName = User().FullName ), "Surname", If(SortDescending1, Descending, Ascending))

 

What I really need is the equivilent of:

SortByColumns(Filter(Participants, Team.DisplayName CONTAINS User().FullName ), "Surname", If(SortDescending1, Descending, Ascending))

 

I've tried every variation of find, search, filter, if and so on but as neither a lookup of people column are a text string the filter fails. I'm trying to find a workaround that would take the value of the people column and convert it to a text string which I could then use to filter the gallery.

 

I hope that makes some sense and thanks in advance!

Re: the property expects Text values, but this rule produces incompatible Record values

I tried to put .Value at the end of the expression, but unfortunately I still receive the same error. "the property expects Text values, but this rule produces incompatible Record values"

 

Do you have any idea what else I could try?

@Daniel_Pipe, you could try filtering the teams first and then joining it with your list of participants on ID like so:

 

Filter(Child,'Parent'.Id in Filter(Parent_1, TextInput1.Text in DisplayName).ID)

 

Do you think this might solve your problem?

@zoltanvarga, do you mind sharing the expression you are trying to evaluate and the structure of your data?

Re: the property expects Text values, but this rule produces incompatible Record values

Hey @Daniel_Pipe,

 

 

Sorry for the super late answer. Didnt have time to get back to this.

I understand what you want to do. And my first instinct with a people field (like the one in SharePoint I suppose) is that I would use a Lookup() funciton. But you can't use like contains in PowerApps. You could use like IsMatch() instead I guess but I could be wrong. 

 

Let me know if it helped you out a bit.

 

Kind regards.

Did not matter.   Table.Field.Value does nothing,.

Re: the property expects Text values, but this rule produces incompatible Record values

I am experiencing a similar error. I am using the following expression "ThisItem.Counterparty.Value" for a label and the underlying data source is a sharepoint list lookup field looking up value from another sharepoint list.

Something similar to this worked for me:

First(Record).FieldName
