How do I sort the referrenced column? I have another table which requires data from another table, I wanted the drop down list to appear the latest entry. How can I do this?

You can do that with the ORDERBY expression like ORDERBY(SELECT(TableName[KeyColumnName],TRUE),[TIMESTAMP],TRUE)

I placed it on the ref and showed error.

Would you please show that expression?

Where did you put this formula?

In the app formula box

Change it to Valid_If

Thanks it worked. one more question, I tried to make a slice with row filter. AND([Date of Admission]=Now()-1, [Time of Admission]>=“07:00:00”) added that expression but the value of 07:00:00 doesn’t seem to return as 7AM instead as 12/30/1899 7:00:00 AM")


That’s the day number 0. Is your slice working correctly?

not working properly, I tried to use the “TEST” Should have resulted as false

Is your column [Time of Admission] a real Time field?

extracted from Date of Admission

Used the ORDERBY expression in this thread to solve my problem. Thank you!

Hi, I was wondering if I could inquire as to how I can reverse the sort? This works perfect for me but… it’s reversing and sorting highest to lowest. I need to sort lowest to highest. Thanks in advance.

Did you check this documentation? Simple toggle true / false within orderby expression to apply ascend/descend either way you want to order the list.
