Formula to Count Selected Cells

Hi,

 

So I am wondering is the following achievable,

I have set of data which looks like this

3010123
3210000
0200000
3210003
3010123
0000003
3010120

Total: 6

 

The user than selects a cell from each row

I than need each of those selected cells in each row to be calculated to give a total score

 

In the example above (the red highlighted cells would equal 6) however this figure could than vary based on the selected cell in each row changing

 

Is there a formula available that would allow for the total value to adjust based on the selected cells from each row

 

App is built in canvas

 

Hope that make sense.

 

Thank you for you assistance

@AzJackson 

How are you currently accomplishing the selection of cells for each row in PowerApps?  This would impact the solution.

Hi @AzJackson ,

Do you mean that:

1)you will select one field in each row?

2)you want to calculate the sum of the selected fields?

Could you tell me whether these fields are number type?
I assume that yes.

I suggest you use collection and gallery in your issue.

I've made a similar test for your reference:

1)set the app's OnStart:

 

ClearCollect(test,AddColumns(datasourcename,"selectedvalue",0))
//add a column to record the selected value

 

2)insert a gallery to display the table

set the gallery's Items:

 

test

 

insert multiple labels inside the gallery to display the fields 

set their Text like this:

 

ThisItem.fieldname

 

3)in my test, these fields named Title1,Title2,Title3,Title4,Title5,Title6,Title7

set Title1's OnSelect:

 

Patch(test,ThisItem,{selectedvalue:Value(Title1.Text)})

 

set Title2's OnSelect:

 

 

Patch(test,ThisItem,{selectedvalue:Value(Title2.Text)})

 

Others are similar.

Then the selectedvalue field will be filled in the selected labels' data.

4)set Title1's Color:

 

If(ThisItem.selectedvalue=Value(Title1.Text),Red,Black)

 

 

set Title2's Color:

 

 

If(ThisItem.selectedvalue=Value(Title2.Text),Red,Black)

 

 

Others are similar.

Then only the selected field will be red.

5)insert a label to display the result, set the label's Text:

 

Sum(test,selectedvalue)

 

This will be the result that you want.

Hi,

 

Yes thee user will select one cell from each row and yes I would like to calculate the total sum of the selected cells

 

Can I build this without it being linked to a data source / data connection and use just the data inputs from within the app?

as the outputs do not need to be stored it just needs to be a "calculator" type function
