Saving a users text input and button selection to an excel spreadhseet

Hi there. I am pretty new to powerapps and was wondering if someone could clear this up for me. I have made an app where a user has to enter text in several boxes on several pages as well as selecting options from dop down lists.

 

What I want to do is save these responses to an excel spreadsheet. I have made a connection but do not know what to do next.

For instance after a user types into a prompted text input i want this to save to a particular cell in a spreadsheet. Also if a user chooses an option from a dropdown list i want this to save in a spreadsheet as well.

 

So if i have promts for "name" "age" and a dropdown yes/no in the app i would want the connected table to have 3 cells added in a row corresponding with the correct heading for the responses.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hi @Toasteroven,

 

It is recommended to start building App from Excel Data with the following guide link:

Generate an App from Excel Data

Basic things that you should take notice of:

1. The fields that you would like to deal within PowerApps should be pre-defined as a column in an Excel table,

2. Following the link I shared, there would be three screens created, only the EditScreen has the ability to update data in Excel,

 

For the controls used in the guide, check:

Understand data forms in Microsoft PowerApps

 

Further, if you just want to work with controls, then we could take use of Patch function to update the data, instead of using form control.

Regards,
