Having problems with patching a form that has multiselect combobox and attachment

hi,

 

I have a form that is connected to a sharepoint list. One of the field on SP is a multi-select choice column and I also need the option to upload attachments to it.

 

I can patch the form to create a new record with either a multi select choice column like {MC: ComboBox.SelectedItems} or I can patch the form with an attachment by patching the record with form.updates.

 

But when I have both on the same form, patch is giving me an unknown error.

 

Any idea how can I resolve this?

Is there any reason that you are using a Form and then using Patch on it?  If you are going to use a form, the SubmitForm button should do most all of the heavy lifting for you.  It fully supports multi-select choices and attachments both.

 

If there is a particular reason, then also provide some of your formulas that you are getting and error on and any screenshots (if relevant).

hi Randy,

I am trying to create a new record every time the user click the submit button instead of updating the existing record for traceability. I dont think submit form can create a new record for me.

 

The screenshot below shows my original formula before I added the combobox for the multi-select column. It was able to create a new record and upload the new attachments without error. After I added the combobox it gave me the error as shown in the picture.

Then I tried to change the patch formula and manually type in every field/datacardvalue, that works for the combobox for the multi-select column, but I will getting an error when I add {Attachments: Datacardvalue.attachments} to the formula.

 

The formula below is what I have that works with the multi-select column but not with attachments.

Patch('Design', Defaults(' Design'), {PN: DataCardValue1.Text}, {Rev: DataCardValue2.Text}, {TestMethod: ComboBox1.SelectedItems}, {Comment: DataCardValue3.Text})

 

Adding attachments at the end like this gives me an error in the formula:

Patch('Design', Defaults(' Design'), {PN: DataCardValue1.Text}, {Rev: DataCardValue2.Text}, {TestMethod: ComboBox1.SelectedItems}, {Comment: DataCardValue3.Text}, {Attachments: DataCardValue4.Attachments)

Also when I tried submitform, it is still giving me "An unknown error occured" message.

 

Edit:

Not sure what is wrong with the combo box, but when I remove and add the field back I can submitform successfully again. But that still wouldn't give me what I want -> to create a new record when I got the button with the combo box and attachments.

Hi @Odobo ,

You have some brackets in the wrong places

If(
   IsEmpty(Errors('PCB Design')),
   Patch(
      'PCB Design'
      Defaults('PCB Design'),
      EditDesignForm.Updates
   )
)
