Adding data from a column in a data table to a collection

Hi All,

 

Please see the attached image of the app. I have a data table that views the data when the user selects something on a power BI report. I want to get the data from the contact id column and the data from the text fields(subject,description) into a collection when the button is clicked. I have the following code in the button but it does not work. The contact id is not getting added to the collection.

 

Collect(
DVdetails,
{
Subject: I_Subject.Text,
Description: I_Description.Text,
MyContactID: ContactID_Column3.Text
}
)

 

I want the collection as:

 

ContactIDSubjectDescription
FF388...ddddd
FF413...ddddd

 

Please help.

I resolved this using the following code. We can merge two collections together:


ClearCollect(
MySPCollection,
PowerBIIntegration.Data
);
ClearCollect(
DVdetails,
{
ID: 1,
Subject: I_Subject.Text,
Description: I_Description.Text
}
);
ClearCollect(MergeSubject,
AddColumns(MySPCollection, "Subject", LookUp(DVdetails,ID=1,Subject) )
);

ClearCollect(MergeDesc,
AddColumns(MergeSubject, "Description", LookUp(DVdetails,ID=1,Description))
)
