why does this put the new variable names in reverse?

In this sample below... I am trying to create 2 new variables...
Count and CountPending
the count is a new column that is created that is the sum of the seats requested where ticketstatusid=1
the countpending is a new column where the seats requested does not equal 1.

the counts are working and a new collection is created but the value for variable name count is associated with the values for the countpending filter and vice versa.
I thought the syntax was addcolumns(table, col1, formula, col2, formula)

 

ClearCollect(TicketRequestCounts,DropColumns(AddColumns(GroupBy('Ticket Request',"EventId","GroupedItems"),"Count",Sum(Filter(GroupedItems,TicketStatusId=1),'Seats Requested'),"CountPending",Sum(Filter(GroupedItems,TicketStatusId <> 1),'Seats Requested')),"GroupedItems"));

 

I'm sure this is something obvious but I'm pretty cross eyed at this point....any thoughts?
If anyone has any ideas for improving the formula let me know please.

Ignore please this is actually correct - it would help if I knew my own data. At least above someone has an example of how to do it 😉

Hi @sasrsc1966

Firstly, you might consider calling Count something else as it is a Reserved Word in Power Apps, however your syntax

 

ClearCollect(
   TicketRequestCounts,
   DropColumns(
      AddColumns(
         GroupBy(
            'Ticket Request',
            "EventId",
            "GroupedItems"
         ),
         "Count",
         Sum(
            Filter(
               GroupedItems,
               TicketStatusId=1
            ),
           'Seats Requested'
         ),
         "CountPending",
         Sum(
            Filter(
               GroupedItems,
               TicketStatusId <> 1
            ),
           'Seats Requested'
         )
      ),
      "GroupedItems"
   )
)

should get the desired result. I assume TicketStatusId is numeric? If so you could use >1 rather than <>1, but I don't think that is the issue.

Thanks Warren (Mr Power Apps guru)... yes, I'll do that. sorry for wasting your time on this one.. 

No problems @sasrsc1966 ,

Just one thing you might consider in future when posting code, use Format Text and post it in a code box as in my post - it makes it much easier to read and correct if necessary.

Thanks for the tip Warren...always trying to better myself.
