Edit Item 'Save' is not working

Hello Community,


I have SharePoint Customize form in PowerApps. When user edits the form and click 'Save' on the form. It does nothing. Neither it gives any error nor Save the changes, and edit form remains open until user click the 'Cancel'. New form is working fine. We are only having issue with Edit form. Even Edit was working earlier and it recently stopped saving the edits.


After reading the community post, I tried to add Refresh('SharePoint Datasource') on form  'OnSuccess' property. But it didn't help. 


I would appreciate any help on it.

Thanks for the information and apologies that I see you DID supply that information in message #4

A couple more things to try:

1) Put a formula in the OnFailure : UpdateContext({lclRes: "Fail"})

2) Add this to your OnSuccess: UpdateContext({lclRes: "Pass"})

4) Add a label to your screen and set the Text property to : lclRes

5) Set the OnSelect of the test label to : UpdateContext({lclRes:Blank()})


Try the steps again and see what the results are.  You can click on the label to reset it in case you need to perform the SubmitForm several times.


Let's start with that and see if the form is even submitting or failing.

@RandyHayes  Thank you for providing the pointers. Form was failing on Save without any error.

We found the root cause of the issue. The problem was lookup threshold. I replaced few choice columns to single line of text that helped in resolving the issue.
