Adding number to specific SharePoint table field and adding them together

Hi All,

 

I am struggling with the issue below:

 

On my app i want an input box of type "Number" that a user can input to. when the form is submitted it will enter the number into the user who is logged in "Days Remaining" field in a SharePoint list, however i want it to subtract the days entered from the number that is currently stored in the SharePoint table.

 

UserEntitlementDays Remaining
user13026

 

I hope that this makes sense but i am struggling to work out how to do this.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Jake

Hi @jakebroom ,

Do you want to update an existing record?

Could you tell me the user field data type and what is your data source?

I assume that user field is person field.

If so, you could try this formula to update with the number in the input box:

Patch(table name,Lookup(table name, User.Email=User().Email),{Days Remaining:Days Remaining-Value(input box.Text)})

Hi @jakebroom ,

I will call the Text box DaysText

On the Update property of the card, change DaysRemaining.Value (or whatever it is) to

 

If(
   !isBlank(DaysText),
      DaysRemaining.Value - Value(DaysText.Text),
      DaysRemaining.Value
)

 

This should subtract any days in the box from the value currently displayed in the card.
