Patch a Multi-Select Option Set

Hi Everyone,

 

I am trying to patch Multi-Select Option Set values in a CDS table. I have a combobox that allows for multi selection and on select of the submit button I have Patch([Table Name], First(Filter([Table Name], Name = gallerySelected.Name)), Patch({Field1: TextInput1.text), Field2:  optionset.value, Field3: Dropdown1.selected.Value, Field4: Combobox1.selectedItems}); and I am getting the following errors. 

The function 'Patch' has some invalid arguments. 

Invalid argument type. Expecting a Table value, but of a different schema.

Missing column. Your formula is missing a column 'Value' with a type of 'OptionSetValue'

 

When I take away field4 the patch does not give me any errors. I am not sure how to go about this issue. If anyone has a solution and wouldn't mind sharing, that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hi @consultantlk :

Could you tell me what the Combobox1's Items property is ?

I assume the Combobox1's Items property is Choices([Table Name].Field4).

Please try this code:

Patch([Table Name], First(Filter([Table Name], Name = gallerySelected.Name)), Patch({Field1: TextInput1.text), Field2:  optionset.value, Field3: Dropdown1.selected.Value, Field4: Combobox1.selectedItems.Value});

I'v made a similar test:

my data source:

EntityAS

Field4(Multi-Select Option)

1\Add a combo box(ComboBox1)

Items:

 

Choices(EntityAS.Field4)

 

2\Add a button:

OnSelect:

 

Patch(EntityAS,First(EntityAS),{Field4:ComboBox1.SelectedItems.Value})

Hi @v-bofeng-msft , turns out the items property of my combobox was pointing to the option set itself rather than the table field. I changed that and used Combobox1.Selected.Value and it worked. Thank you so much for the help!
