Field value won't save

Hi everyone,

I am passing an ID value from one form to another by setting the new forms data card value default to DataCardValue1.Text (Referencing the data I want to pull from the previous form). However, this value does not save to SharePoint.


Any help would be very much appreciated!

Hi @Anonymous 


is the value showing on the New form prior to submitting the form?

Not applicable

Yes! The value shows up in a new form but once I save it it is blank



If you manually enter a value in new item form for that field

does that save?



Not applicable

Yes! All of the other values that are manually entered into the form save



If you want to set values in the new form for a datacard, set datacard's filds Default and Update to the variable/value you want and also set DataCardValue of the particular Datacard property - DefaultSelectedItems to your variable/value.


I am doing this that way and it works for me.


Hope this helps.
