Patch Time and Date to DateTime Column in SharePoint

Hi all,

 

I have a screen in one of my apps where I am trying to patch the date and time which a user selects over to a date and time column in SharePoint (my data source).

 

My screen looks like this. And on the select of the add button I have the following code.

Patch(
          FinanceTimeLog,
          {
                   AgentID: NamePicker_2.Selected.UserPrincipalName,
                   AgentName: NamePicker_2.Selected.GivenName & " " & NamePicker_2.Selected.Surname,
                   Team: TeamPicker_2.Selected.Result,
                   Category: CategoryPicker.Selected.Result,
                   StartTime: StartDate.SelectedDate + Time(drpStartHours.Selected.Value, drpStartMins.Selected.Value),
                   EndTime: EndDate.SelectedDate + Time(Value(drpEndHours.Selected.Value, drpEndMins.Selected.Value)),
                   Notes: txtNotes.Text})

 

I have tried both the codes highlighted in bold above and I either get the error "invalid number of arguments" or "the function 'time' has some invalid arguments".

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks,

 

Freddie

Please consider changing your Formula to the following:

 

Patch(
    FinanceTimeLog,
    {
     AgentID: NamePicker_2.Selected.UserPrincipalName,
     AgentName: NamePicker_2.Selected.GivenName & " " & NamePicker_2.Selected.Surname,
     Team: TeamPicker_2.Selected.Result,
     Category: CategoryPicker.Selected.Result,
     StartTime: DateTimeValue(Text(StartDate.SelectedDate, ShortDate) & " " & Text(drpStartHours.Selected.Value) & ":" & Text(drpStartMins.Selected.Value)),
     EndTime: DateTimeValue(Text(EndDate.SelectedDate, ShortDate) & " " & Text(drpEndHours.Selected.Value) & ":" & Text(drpEndMins.Selected.Value)),
     Notes: txtNotes.Text
    }
)

 

 

I hope this is helpful for you.

 

EDIT:  Oh, and by the way, your original formula had an extra Value function in it that had mismatched closing parens.
