Edit form issue

Morning all,

After some help on what should be an easy task.

Simply trying to load data into an edit form,

My forms datasource is correct, the same as the source used in the gallery I use to select the item.

The items property of the form is set to LookUp('Expense Line Holding',ID=varLineitem.ID)

This populates the correct record in the formula area as shown below

But my form fields do not populate, what am I missing?

Thanks

One thing to check on your old form is the Mode property. If it's set to 'New' rather than 'Edit', that could provide an explanation.

Just inserted a new form with the same set up as above and it is now working, perhaps the issue was because i'd copy / pasted the form from another page within the app.

I have it working at least, still like to understand why the first version didn't work.

Can you show the formula for the variable. Also is the variable on a different screen?

If on different screen the use Set function instead of UpdateContext. That is if you used UpdateContext.

Believe this was probably it, should have checked it myself, thanks though.
