How to create a screen that can call back existing data inside SP list by matching?



I had created a form edit that is for submission and edit


can I create another new screen in the same canvas to retrieve back existing data by inputting it's SP ID number or vendor name to show some data eg the description and amount with  it's attachment inside SP list whereby the user can submit another attachment into the same data for approval ? ?

You could put a dropdown and a form on a screen with your list as the Items property of the dropdown. The form should have it's datasource as the list. The item property of the form should be Lookup(yourlist, ID=Dropdown.Selected.ID).

Hi Drrickryp


I like to check I have a column called Vendor and it is a single text in SP


I added a dropbox in PowerApps for search selected is it possible?   

Lookup(list, Vendor = Dropdown1.Selected.Text) - this don't work.

That depends. Is it a list of vendors? Are there duplicates in your list?

There is no list of vendors, it all input by user


and yes there will be same vendor at somepoint of different rows.

It's not clear to me if the Dropbox is inside the form or if you are using it to select the record for the form.

I want to be able to select the existing data inside the SP list to call back the item with it's attachment.


the SP list has ID, vendor name (single text) , description (single text) and attachment inside the list. and others..
