2 Collect Statements for only 1 collection row

Hello everybody,

I've been trying to store content from multiple Collect commands in the same row of a table for some time now. Unfortunately the entries are qritten in diffrent rows.

I used statements like:

Collect(
    Cache,
    {
        CustomerNo: input_custno.Text,
        CustomerName: input_custname.Text,
        ContactPerson: input_contact.Text,
        ProjectNo: input_prono.Text,
        OrderedBy: input_ordered.Text,
        CheckedBy: input_checked.Text,
        DateBegin: date_begin.SelectedDate,
        DateEnd: date_end.SelectedDate,
        FaultType: dropdown_faulttype.SelectedText,
        Priority: dropdown_prio.SelectedText
    }
)

I also tried Statements like 

ClearCollect

and stuff like that.

[this is how it looks like]

 

Can anyone help me with that?

Hi @JonasH 

 

Do you have separate expressions for adding these values? I mean first expression to add the values getting populated in first row and second expression with the values added in second row?
 
Collect() create a new line in the collection and it won't merge the results until done with an expression.
 
If you wish to edit the records in a existing row in the collection, then you might need to use the Patch() for the second expression instead of Collect() (This creates a new row). Here, you will need an identifier to recognize the specific row and update it.
 
Second Expression: 
Patch(Cache, LookUp(Cache, Name = "Value1"),{Col1:"Value2",Col2:"Value3"})
 
If this differs, please share the set of expressions used by you, so that we might be able to help you better.
 
Hope this helps!

Thanks for your fast reply @yashag2255,

 

I found out about 1. 5 hours ago that another solution was more suitable for my purposes.

I've just tried to test your suggested solution so I can mark it as a solution, but I'd still have to create the columns for it. Currently I don't have time to understand how the AddColumn Expression works, so I assume that your solution works and mark it as a solution.

 

Thank you so much for your help.

Have a nice day ^-^
