EditForm is Creating New Item

Hello .. new to PowerApps and having an odd issue.  When I am trying to EDIT a record "SubmitForm(FormEditCase)", on submit it is creating a NEW record.  Any advice would be appreciated.






I added the field at the bottom of my form, but then made it "hidden" so that it does not appear to the person using the form.

Thank you

My requirement is to replicate your issue. I need to create new record instead of updation when using editform. Suggestions pls

I am also new to the PowerApps and I am having the same issue. I have a multilevel list in which I am navigating with using the Filter and Distinct -functions.

In this list I would be picking one row, and edit it. I have the following columns: ID, Document, Revision, Registration, Initials, Date, Update status. (Document, Revision and Registration are used in navigation, ID is just for selecting a row, which I don't know how to do and the remaining ones describe data that must be filled to the item.

I suspect that I am not really dealing with a list item in my EditForm, only a generic entry that will produce a new item to the list.

Can someone please tell how to use the ID solution someone mentioned earlier?
