Concat returning only last item multiple times

I have a gallery which has a collection to enter multiple goals. When I am trying to generate a JSON from the collection items the JSON is returned with only last item repeated number of times as the number of items.

 

From the below screenshot, I should expect the JSON to return...

[{"APSTFocusArea":"fg","GoalTitle":"sf","AchieveBy":"May 20, 2019","IWill":"ggg","SoThat":"fg","Strategy":"gggggggggggggggg","ProgressNotes":"sf"},{"APSTFocusArea":"j","GoalTitle":"jhh","AchieveBy":"May 20, 2019","IWill":"hj","SoThat":"gj","Strategy":"jjjjjjjj","ProgressNotes":"jklljh"}]

 

But the value returned is

[{"APSTFocusArea":"j","GoalTitle":"jhh","AchieveBy":"May 20, 2019","IWill":"hj","SoThat":"gj","Strategy":"jjjjjjjj","ProgressNotes":"jklljh"},

{"APSTFocusArea":"j","GoalTitle":"jhh","AchieveBy":"May 20, 2019","IWill":"hj","SoThat":"gj","Strategy":"jjjjjjjj","ProgressNotes":"jklljh"}]

 

The formula I used is

 

Concat(
GoalsCollection,
",{""APSTFocusArea"":""" & APSTFocusArea_1.Text & """,""GoalTitle"":""" & GoalTitle_1.Text & """,""AchieveBy"":""" & AchieveBy_1.SelectedDate & """,""IWill"":""" & IWill_1.Text & """,""SoThat"":""" & SoThat_1.Text & """,""Strategy"":""" & Strategy_1.Text & """,""ProgressNotes"":""" & ProgressNotes_1.Text & """}"
)

 

Why would concat pick only the last record multiple times? Has anyone experienced this before?

That's not so strange since you're getting the values from the text boxes and not the collection itself:

 

Concat(
GoalsCollection,
",{""APSTFocusArea"":""" & APSTFocusArea_1.Text & """,""GoalTitle"":""" & GoalTitle_1.Text & """,""AchieveBy"":""" & AchieveBy_1.SelectedDate & """,""IWill"":""" & IWill_1.Text & """,""SoThat"":""" & SoThat_1.Text & """,""Strategy"":""" & Strategy_1.Text & """,""ProgressNotes"":""" & ProgressNotes_1.Text & """}"
)

Change all the text boxes to the underlying field (column) in the collection, and it will work!

 

Concat(
GoalsCollection,
",{""APSTFocusArea"":""" & Collection_column1 & """,""GoalTitle"":""" & GoalTitle_1.Text & """,""AchieveBy"":""" & AchieveBy_1.SelectedDate & """,""IWill"":""" & IWill_1.Text & """,""SoThat"":""" & SoThat_1.Text & """,""Strategy"":""" & Strategy_1.Text & """,""ProgressNotes"":""" & ProgressNotes_1.Text & """}"
)

Good luck!
