Lookup within same Collection

Hi,

 

I am trying to patch a collection but some of the field in my patch are looking up value from SP based on another field within collection and I guess Patching function is faster than lookup so nothing is being patched for the lookup field. 

 

For example: Equipment_Date field has the following formula : If(ThisItem.Assetclass= "10402000 - Equipment",LookUp('Equipment Table',Title= ThisItem.ShipLoc,EQU_Cap_Date),"N/A").

 

Below is my patch code:

Patch(AssetCollection,ThisItem,
{Assetclass: DropAsset.SelectedText.Value, ShipLoc: DropShip.SelectedText.Value, QTY: Value(Input_QTY.Text) , Amount: Value(Input_Amt.Text), Description: Input_Des.Text, Linetotal: Value(Input_QTY.Text)*Value(Input_Amt.Text),
Equipment_Date: Equipment_Date.Text, Furniture_Date: Furniture_Date.Text,Lease_Start_Date: Lease_Start_Date.Text, Lease_Yr: Lease_Yr.Text, Lease_Mo: Lease_Mo.Text, CC: CC.Text, WBS: WBS.Text , ShowSave: false });

 

Is there a way I can patch to the same record in Collection? this way I can break the sections and allow powerapps some time? Or is there a better way to do this? I am asking user to add expense using a gallery. 

 

Thanks

Hi @Faye125 ,

 

Could you please share more details about your scenario?

 

If I understand correctly, do you want to patch a single collection row and the Equipment_Date value depends on other column value? 

 

If so, why not use the Assetclass value directly in the If statement?

Patch(AssetCollection,ThisItem,
{
Assetclass: DropAsset.SelectedText.Value, 
ShipLoc: DropShip.SelectedText.Value, 
QTY: Value(Input_QTY.Text) , 
Amount: Value(Input_Amt.Text), 
Description: Input_Des.Text, 
Linetotal: Value(Input_QTY.Text)*Value(Input_Amt.Text),
Equipment_Date: If(DropAsset.SelectedText.Value = "10402000 - Equipment",LookUp('Equipment Table',Title= ThisItem.ShipLoc,EQU_Cap_Date),"N/A"), 
Furniture_Date: Furniture_Date.Text,
Lease_Start_Date: Lease_Start_Date.Text, 
Lease_Yr: Lease_Yr.Text, 
Lease_Mo: Lease_Mo.Text, 
CC: CC.Text, 
WBS: WBS.Text , 
ShowSave: false
}
);

 

Hope this helps.
