Modify / Add Data from an SQL View Using EditForms

Hello! I'm still pretty new with PowerApps and would like to know the best way to edit / add data in an SQL view. Basically, I have a canvass app connected to an SQL DB. The DB has multiple tables and consolidated to a view. If I want to add / edit the view, I need to edit the underlying table (let's call it master table) where it gets the data from. I used an edit form with master table as the source.

Is lookup function an effective way to do this? I tried patterning my lookup with Shane Young's tutorial video but just couldn't make it work and I always get the message "This formula uses scope, which is not presently supported for evaluation." I don't think it would be that straight forward since I want to edit the master table so in the editform, the datacard values should show it's corresponding value from the view and not the master table.
