Code execution logic in formulas



I'm using Semicolon (";") as a seperator between multiple code executions.


Let's say I have the following formula as an example:


Patch( Gallery; Defaults(  Gallery ); { ItemStatus: “Added to Gallery” } );

UpdateIf( DataSource; ItemStatus = "Added to Gallery"; { Completed: Now() })

Can I always count on all the gallery items are patched to the data source, before the "UpdateIf" runs?


and what would happen if the patch function fails for some reason?


Thanks in advance,

Re: Code execution logic in formulas

The formula will evaulate in chronological order. It will run the patch first and then chain updateif immediately following that. However, if you want them to evaulate simutaneously, the Concurrent function allows for such.
