  2. Serial number ( must be an editable text field)
  3. Question 1 (for example; Is the car Red?) to be answered with an Radio button, Yes/No/Na. Selected value to be returned
  4. Remark 1(text field)
  5. Photo of defect 1
  6. Question 2 (for example; Are the wheels on pressure?) to be answered with an Radio button, Yes/No/Na. Selected value to be returned
  7. Remarks 2 (text field)

Hi @NicoZ ,

Do you want to know how to update boolen and pictures to Excel?

1)update boolen value

insert a radio button 

set the radio button's Items:

["yes","no","na"]

2)update picture:

set the colum name in Excel to: Photo of defect 1[image]  ,   Photo of defect 2[image]

(then the column can update image data)

insert an add picture control

 

Update formula:

Patch(tablename,Defaults(tablename),
{number: GUID(), //this will result an unique value
Serial number:textinput1.Text,
Question 1: Radio1.Value,
Remark 1:textinpur2.Text,
Photo of defect 1[image]:AddMediaButton1.Media,
Question 2: Radio2.Value,,
Remark 2:textinpur3.Text,
Photo of defect 2[image]:AddMediaButton2.Media})

Please note that you need to format your data as table in excel and I suggest you upload your excel to one drive, connect your app with one drive. Choosing "import form excel" is static data, you can not update data.

Here's a doc about how to update data in PowerApps for your reference:
