Get Data from a SQL database and save on another SQL database

Hi guys.

 

I'm new on the PoweAapps (not to say noob) and am having trouble getting what I need.

 

Here's the point:

 

I have two different databases (database A ;; database B), with different columns (a1, a2, a3 ;; b1, b2, b3).

I need my app to get the information from database A, column a1 and save this information to database B, column b1.

 

I already have both databases connected through the gateway.

 

I was able to select information from database A, column a1 through the ComboBox. Now I need the selected information to be saved to database B, column b1

 

I don't know if I was clear, but if you can help me I was very grateful!

Hi @viniandrade ,

 

There are several functions you can use to save data, such as Patch(), Collect(), Update(), etc.

To create new records, you can refer to the following formulas:

Patch('Database B', Defaults('Database B'), {b1: Combobox.Selected.a1})
Collect('Database B',  {b1: Combobox.Selected.a1})

To modify records, you can refer to the following formulas:

Patch('Database B', BaseRecord, {b1: Combobox.Selected.a1})
Update('Database B', OldRecord, {b1: Combobox.Selected.a1})   /* this will replace the record, not modify values*/

Best regards,

Sik

Here is an example of how you could use a button to patch the data to database b.

 

Patch('Database B', Defaults('Database B'), {b1:Combobox.Selected.Value})

 

*You'll need to update names to reflect what is being used in your app

*This creates a new record in Database B
