How can I insert selected Listbox items as a new record in to a common data service table

I have a PowerApps canvas App and I have a requirement of creating new records for all selected listbox items in to a table. I am actually trying to implement a many to many relationship scenario

my Listbox name is: ListBox1 and my table name is ContactsTable inside the page I have put a button and on click of button I put the following PowerApps logic:

 

      ForAll(ListBox1.SelectedItems,Patch(ContactsTable ,Defaults(ContactsTable),{EmpID:2,Name:ListBox1.Selected.Name}));

 

it creates the last selected item repeated based on the number of items I selected from listbox any Idea would be great.

Hi @mjx ,

Assuming you want them all to have EmpID if 2, you would do this (also Name is not a good title for a field - it is a Reserved Word in Power Apps).

 ForAll(
    ListBox1.SelectedItems As MyList,
   Patch(
      ContactsTable ,
      Defaults(ContactsTable),
      {
          EmpID:2,
          Name:MyList.Name 
      }
   )
)
