Re: How to bulk update 50 rows one screen with editable grid like control


This can be done using the ForAll function. You need to communicate to PowerApps:

  1. Which records you want to edit
  2. How you want it edited


		{field1: [change],
			field5: [change]

In the formula above, it assumes you have collected all the records that need a change into a temporary collection. 


The formula means "for every record in the temporary collection, edit the corresponding record in the original datasource whose ID equals that one, and only change fields 1 and 5."


You may need to use disambiguation if the field name in the temp collection is the same as the original datasource.

Re: How to bulk update 50 rows one screen with editable grid like control



I am writing this as i cannot see any solution for this in the forum. I am trying to bulk update 5 rows each contains 7 columns with different values using ForAll and patch functions. However, it is getting updated with same value for all 5 rows.


My formula for Submit button:

ForAll(Timesheet,(Patch(TimeSheet_Week1,{Day: Value(TextBox8.Text),Worked: Value(TextInput1.Text),Vacation: Value(TextInput2.Text),Sick:Value(TextInput3.Text),Overtime: Value(TextInput4.Text),Client: TextInput5.Text,Location: TextInput6.Text},{Day: Value(TextBox10.Text),Worked:Value (TextInput7.Text),Vacation: Value(TextInput8.Text), Sick:Value(TextInput9.Text), Overtime:Value(TextInput10.Text), Client:TextInput11.Text, Location:TextInput12.Text},{Day: Value(TextBox16.Text),Worked:Value (TextInput13.Text),Vacation: Value(TextInput14.Text), Sick:Value(TextInput15.Text), Overtime:Value(TextInput16.Text), Client:TextInput17.Text, Location:TextInput18.Text},{Day: Value(TextBox17.Text),Worked:Value (TextInput19.Text),Vacation: Value(TextInput23.Text), Sick:Value(TextInput24.Text), Overtime:Value(TextInput25.Text), Client:TextInput21.Text, Location:TextInput22.Text},{Day: Value(TextBox18.Text),Worked:Value (TextInput31.Text),Vacation: Value(TextInput30.Text), Sick:Value(TextInput29.Text), Overtime:Value(TextInput28.Text), Client:TextInput26.Text, Location:TextInput27.Text}))
