Collection and Sharepoint List show different data in datatable after clearcollect


I have a Powerapp with a data table but noticed that some data was missing. The data table uses a collection as the source (Item 1 in the image). However when I refreshed the collection using the "ClearCollect" function (ClearCollect(intakeCollection,'Intake to Savings'), some data in the collection disappears (Item 2 in the image - Notice how ID 5093 is missing). The data in the collection is refreshed using the data from a SharePoint list. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You might need to REFRESH the datasource immediately before the ClearCollect.

Refresh('Intake to Savings');
ClearCollect(intakeCollection,'Intake to Savings')

@mdevaney  I tried the refresh before the clearcollect with no success. I have a feeling that the SharePoint list data is cached and when the Collection gets refreshed its getting refreshed with the outdated/cached SharePoint list.
