Data source 500 item limit for SP list and 256 items for AWA table

Hello all.

I am banging my head against a limit of 500 items on a SharePoint* list and 256 items for an Access Web App table (should be equivalent to an Azure SQL table).

I test this by simply adding a data source and then show the result in a text box with text = CountRows(MyDataSource)

Does anyone have any ideas how to increase these limits or work around them?

 

*SharePoint online as part of Office 365

This is something we're actively working on improving -- stay tuned for updates on this front very soon.

I posted a highly roundabout solution the other day:

Do we have any updates on when SharePoint's items limit will be increased? I know it has already been sorted for SQL Azure, so I was wondering if SP will be next? 😄

Somehow my Sharepoint list shows only 256 items

This is known issue. I received an Email from support saying that this should be fixed by the middle of November.

I will keep my fingers crossed.

Bad news for everyone waiting for this 😞 looks like it's not going to be released until Jan/Feb 2017...

Was this issue successfully resolved? Is there a bottom line effective limit on the number of Sharepoint list rows/items when used by PowerApps as a data source? Is it 500? Is it 5,000,000?

Re: Data source 500 item limit for SP list and 256 items for AWA table

Further to the above, is the effective limit dependent on the number of fields/columns in the sharepoint list data source?

@ColinI,

 

The 500 items list items has been raised, however it will only work in some cases using Delegation..
