Getting errors on formulas

Hi . 

Trying to build separate forms to create, show or edit the list item, as shown in the article: 

https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/separate-custom-forms/

 

As example: 

  • OnNew – Set(SharePointFormMode, "CreateForm"); NewForm(CreateItemForm); Navigate(CreateScreen, ScreenTransition.None)

When using the provided formulas, I do get errors "Unexpected characters" and "ParenClose where Error is expected" (translated from Norwegian) 

I am fairly new at this, and it is learning by doing at the moment. 

Location is in Norway, and wonder if there is an issue with some of the characters, that differs on region and language settings? 

" , " and " ; " for example? 

 

Hoping to get some good advice, leading me in the right direction here.

Yes, for many European countries there is a difference in the syntax vs. North America.

Note: I dislike this feature of PowerApps since it only leads to confusion.
