Problem with detailscreen/form and editscreen/form

Hi Powerapps experts

 

I have a general issue with apps build from scratch. Whenever I try to add detail screens or edit screen with the forms I am never able to connect to the excel sheet from OneDrive. The datasource is connected but whenever I try to connect in the edit screen or detail screen it is not working. I do not get any information on what is wrong/missing. The lack of information when things are not connecting is a general issue for Powerapps in my opinion, atleast give me an error message! 

 

Does anyone have an idea on how to solve this? 

 

Thanks in advance. 

 

Best regards 

Mikkel

Re: Problem with detailscreen/form and editscreen/form

Hi @Anonymous,

 

Do you mean the editscreen or the Details Screen shows no data?

If yes, then I think the issue here should be the Item property of the form control.

In addition to configure the Datasource property, we need to configure the item property with a special record.

Please check the article first, see if it would help:

Understand data forms in Microsoft PowerApps

For configuration and editing form control, please follow:

Edit form and Display Form controls in PowerApps

And if I have any misunderstandings, please feel free to post back.

Regards,

Michael

Re: Problem with detailscreen/form and editscreen/form

Hi Michael 

 

Thank you for your reply and links. I have seen the two guides you refer to before, but it does not quit adress my issue. 

I know how to set up display form and edit form from scratch, but the problem is that the connection to the data source fails to often. 

 

One of the things I found impossible was to connect to more than one tabel in the same excel sheet (shared via OneDrive). Can it be true that I cannot connect with more than one tabel in a excel sheet?

 

PS. the connection issue is also evident if I connect to more than one tabel/spreadsheet for the same app.
