Re: Multi save data in excel

Hi @DIego_Canales ,

Do you want to change all rows in your _B2019 data source based on the matched Concept?

 

Based on the needs that you mentioned, I think the ForAll function could achieve your needs. Please consider take a try with the following workaround:

Set the OnSelect property of the "Mul" button to following:

ForAll(
         RenameColumns(Filter(_B2019; TextSearchBox2.Text in 'Concept'); "PrimaryColumn"; "PrimaryColumn1");
Patch(
_B2019;
LookUp(_B2019; PrimaryColumn = PrimaryColumn1);
{
PROVEEDOR: TextInput3.Text
}
) )

Note: The PrimaryColumn represents the primary column in your _B2019 data source, which could identify one record uniquely in your _B2019 data source.

 

Please consider take a try with above solution, then check if the issue is solved.

Re: Multi save data in excel

Hi Diego,

 

I have never patched to Excel but I am sure it is the same as many other data sources. Try and filter on the unique key when you are patching and it should do the trick:

 

I think your key is : PROVEEDOR (Not sure. if it is not please change this with your unique key)

 

Patch(_B2019,First(Filter(_B2019, PROVIDER=gallery.selected.PROVIDER)),{PROVIDER:TextInput2.text})

 

Give that a try and let me know if it works for you.

Re: Multi save data in excel

thanks @myke_deabreu , you helped me to solve the first issue

this is the formula:

Patch(_B2019;First(Filter(_B2019;TextSearchBox2.Text in 'Concept'));{PROVEEDOR: TextInput3.Text})

the issue, i want change all the rows, but the condition First, only let me change one concept.

i tried use FirstN and ForAll, but i only can use First.

Could you have some idea?

Thanks for all.

Regards.
