Hi @Vinith 


Please use the filter command to query data from sharepoint:
Expression: Filter(CT_Data,'CT ID' = TextInput1.Text && 'CT Name'=TextInput2.Text)
Here, I have used TextBox control, but if you are using any other Control, please replace TextInput1.Text and TextInput2.Text with corresponding values.
Hope this Helps!

Re: powerapps sharepoint search with huge data

Hi @Vinith 

For a SharePoint list of that size, you must use a delegateable function like StartsWith() to search it. See There are several posts in the documentation regarding delegation in PowerApps and the functions supported by each connector. There are limitations in SharePoint that are not present in Sql or CDS. However, if your list is for reference only and will not need to be edited, you may want to export it from SharePoint and connect it as a static Excel datasource.  In that case, with 25,000 items, you will need to import your list in two Excel files and combine them in a single collection since this connector is limited to 15,000 items. For an example of how this works with a list of >40,000 items, please see my post in the community blog
