How can I create a checkbox that links to an Excel File in OneDrive?

Hi all,

 

I am using an Excel spreadsheet in One Drive to create an app that is a simple work checklist.  I want to have a column for the task and then another column to include the Yes/No of a checkbox.  If I leave the column blank in the spreadsheet and create the checkbox in the app, how do I link the two items correctly?  Or, do I need to do this in a different fashion?

 

Any help is appreciated.  Thanks!

Hi @KenH

 

Check Box control under PowerApps only returns "True" or "false" value.

Check Box Control in PowerApps

We could write formula to update the corresponding data fields with together wit hthe patch function.

I will try to do some tests from my side. and Update here with the results.

Appreciate your patience.
