Hey everyone,
I created a form for checking firedoors.
So they fill in what number of door they are going to chek and they fill in the rest of the form.
At the end the door get a score.
Higher than 10 = direct action, between 5 and 10 = action but not direct. under 5 = door is OK.

So in the database I have following entrys:
id      Numberdoor      score     date
14     AT3432              13         2024/03/05
15     ZE23E34            12        2024/03/06
16    3E454R2            10         2024/03/15
17    AT3432               5          2024/04/01

I want a View that only if the newest score  of any door that is higher then 10 need to see. So check only the latest entry of each door. So my filter is now "SCORE higher or equal to 10 AND Numberdoor Unique (get newest entries)"

My view looks now like:
AT3432          13
ZE23E34        12
3E454R2        10

Why is AT3432 still showed? There is a newer entry with a lower score....

Can someone help me?


With kind regards,

What do you have in your view filter? It's entirely possible that the query isn't looking at the full number and is sorting by the first digit, which would make 5 > 1 true.

Is the score field a number or text field?

Its a number field

Ultimately it is doing what you are asking, but I don't think order of the filter is being honored. Have you submitted the issue to the Formidable support team?

It is finding and only listing the unique value. It is finding and listing a value greater than 10. It is not honoring them as "and" while also in the order in which you have the filters.
