Error: The type of this argument 'DateText' does not match the expected type 'DateTime". Found type 'Text'

My patch function works for all of my data fields except for my date/time that needs to transfer over. Here is my current formula. 

 

Patch(
Table2,
Defaults(Table2),
{
Campus:ThisItem.Campus,
PatientName:ThisItem.PatientName,
EMSAgency:ThisItem.EMSAgency,
RegistrationConfirmed:ThisItem.RegistrationConfirmed,
Reason:ThisItem.Reason,
CompletedBy:ThisItem.CompletedBy,
EditedBy:ThisItem.EditedBy,
DateText:ThisItem.DateEntered
}
);
Remove(Table1,ThisItem);
Refresh(Table1)

 

The "DateText:ThisItem.DateEntered" is the only piece that is failing to move over. I have tried to change formula to DateText:DateTimeValue(ThisItem.DateEntered) but then it transfers the already-recorded date/time completely wrong.

 

The DateEntered field is a non-editable text field which pulls from a timer. Its formula is:

Text(DateEntered, "[$-en-US]mm/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ssss")

My label that it pulls the date time from is: Set(DateEntered, Now())

What results do you get if you change that part to;

DateText: Now ()

 

Or

DateText:ThisItem.DateEntered without formatting the variable

DateText: Now () - wouldn't patch the already recorded date/time, right? It would record the patched date/time which is not what I'm looking for. 

 

DateText:ThisItem.DateEntered without formatting the variable - is what I have been doing and it returns The type of this argument 'DateText' does not match the expected type 'DateTime". Found type 'Text'

Try using a DatePicker and format it.

If the purpose is to refresh it, you can Use the timer to refresh the DatePicker such that current Time is captured.

In that Case, there Will not be conflict between DateTime and the Text format.

 

The formula would then be

DateText:ThisItem.DatePicker1.SelectedDate

DatePicker does not work either. I've explored this before.

 

I got this working by adding & next to another field and it pulls correctly.
