Help connecting my text inputs to an excel

I'm new to PowerApps and was wondering if there is a way to connect my text inputs into an excel file. Since I want to create a signup screen and connect the information to the login screen.

Re: Help connecting my text inputs to an excel

You can connect to an Excel file stored in OneDrive but you will need to recreate your form again. Fortunately the form will auto-create itself and you can just restyle it.

Here’s the steps:
1. Insert a Table into your Excel workbook with the column headings Email, Username, Password
2. Put the Excel file in your OneDrive folder
3. Connect PowerApps to your OneDrive and select the Excel file you saved
4. In PowerApps insert an Edit Form and select the Excel file as your datasource
5. Restyle the form to match your desired theme

Re: Help connecting my text inputs to an excel

I restyled it but every time I click to preview the text input disappears. Also, how would I submit the data to the excel table? Do I need a button and if I do what function would I put in it to work?

Yes, create a new button and put this code in the OnSelect property of it
