Hi there,

I have the following scenario going in expression builder.

I want to sort a column for certain strings (say type 'A') but not for 'B'

The current formula I have is not working

Like (getstring([Forms]![Input]![txt1]) & "*") not like (getstring([Forms]![Input]![txt2]) & "*"

Open in new window


Any help is much appreciated!
