Hi @PriyaShetty 

The way to do this is to call the Patch function to add your records to Table B.

@eka24's  code here gives a good example.

Here's a link to online documentation for Patch.

Hi @PriyaShetty 

You're welcome!

You can use the GroupBy and Sum functions to do this.

Here's the help page.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/functions/function-groupby 

Your formula would approximately look like this. This will return a table with the columns Pid and SumOfRating.

AddColumns( 
 GroupBy(TableA, "Pid", "GroupedItems"),
 "SumOfRating",
 Sum(GroupedItems, Rating)
)

@timl Thank You.This solution worked  for me.As I have one more query on how can sum all the field values .

Below is the table

Pid      Rating

201      2

201      3

201      1

301      2 

301      1

 

 

so i should get sum of rating for all pid 201 as 6 and for 301 as 3
