Edit Form, Excel or Sharepoint

I have to create a form that enables user to key in data and once they submit the form, it should be saved to a excel or Sharepoint list for future reference. 

 

Issue:

I created an Excel file with Table headings and then used this as destination file for the PowerApps to save data.

When I run the App, the form becomes blank and don't know whats the error. I too tried with SharePoint as Source file too.

 

Is there a way apart from this?

That is strange. May be it not a form.

For Patch:

Patch( Datasource, Defaults( Datasource), { Title:TextBox1.Text,  Timer:TextBox2.Text,Date:DatePicker22.SelectedDate} )

 

Change DatePicker22 to your actual name of the DatePicker

Insert two buttons to switch the display modes:

 

Button2 Onselect: NewForm(YourFormName)

Button1 Onselect: EditForm(YourFormName)

 

You can also insert a Gallery1 alongside the Form and  put:
Gallery1.Selected in the ITEM of the form

 

I believe clicking the buttons will resolve it.

I'm intended to collect some data from the App like date, name and timer function, etc.

This things need to be saved  in a excel or SharePoint file for reference.

Title, Date and Timer will be collected automatically from the App and on clicking a button I need to save the data to excel or SharePoint

 

Thanks

I take this as a follow up question, as you were dealing with a blank form?

To send the data to the excel or sharepoint, Once you are using a form, put:

   SubmitForm(YourFormNameHere) on the OnSelect of the button

 

After clicking the button, that should be done.
