How to add a list constraint when searching a repeating group?

Hey Bubble Forum :wave:t2:

I have a multidropdown selector on my page which has a list of Accounting Apps. This list comes from a database table and is not filtered in any way:

I also have repeating group which displays a list of Jobs. Each Job has a list of Accounting Apps attached to it. The repeating group searches for Jobs that have certain constraints set by the user:

My goal is for the user to be able to search for a Job that contains at least 1 of the Accounting Apps selected from the multidropdown selector.

At the moment, if I select 1 Accounting App from the multidropdown selector - everything works perfectly.

If I select more than 1 Accounting App from the multidropdown selector - the repeating group shows nothing at all.

In the database, I tried setting Accounting Apps to be a:

  1. List of Texts
  2. List of Accounting Apps

Accounting system = List of Texts
TestAccountingSystem = List of Accounting Apps

But no success.

I’m guessing people have faced an issue like this before - does anyone know a way around it?
