Can't reference Form1.LastSubmit.ID?

Unrelated, but has anyone noticed the PA forums erroring out when creating topics like 50% of the time?


Anyhow, I have a form that I submit with a button. In the OnSuccess of the form, I have a patch that I'm trying to reference the forms lastsubmit.ID but it doesn't like the ID part? It gives me a "expected text but found error" message.


The wild thing is I have this working in a different app without issue.





What happens if you put Form1.LastSubmit.ID in a label?  Does it show any value?

@mdevaney  still can't reference it. Screenshot below:



What does the full error message say for ID.  Screenshot please.


Same as before:

The ID field in CDS must be named something different then.  What are your columns in CDS.  Show a screenshot if possible.

I have a bunch, but here's the majority of them. You can see the parentcernum field in here as well.


Also, even if that field was wrong, it doesn't really explain why I can't target the Form1.LastSubmit.ID at all right? I would just get a "This column doesn't exist" error in my Patch code.




Actually, I think it does explain why.  SharePoint always has an ID field to track the unique value.  You are using CDS which tracks "ID" in a different column.


Your "ID" must be in one of those fields in the screenshot.  I would try these ideas.  Otherwise, you'll have to start digging through CDS to find the appropriate field...



@mdevaney  Ohhhh... OK. Wow, yea that makes sense now. I think it's probably this field then:

I'll mess around with it and report back. I think you solved it though.

Hi @notj ,

Do you mean that the Edit form is connected to your CDS Entity?

Do you want to patch data from your collLineItems collection to your CERLineItems Entity along with the submitted CERLineItems value?


I have made a test on my side, please consider modify your formula as below:

                Vendor: collLineItems[@vendor],
                ItemDesc: collLineItems[@itemDesc],
                ItemClassification: collLineItems[@classType],
                ParentCERNum: Form1.LastSubmit.CERLineItems

Please consider take a try with above solution, then check if the issue is solved.
