Patch a date from a label

Hello,

 

I have a label in my powerapp which displays a date (Label26).  Is there a way i can use a patch function to get the date value out of that label and store it in a Sharepoint list in the 'LastDate' column?

The Patch function will be triggered with a Button if that makes any difference.

 

Thankyou in advance

Did you use 'DateValue' instead of 'Value' when trying to update date?

you can use :

 

Patch(ListName,LookUp(ListName,ID=1),{MasterDate:DateValue(lableDate.Text)})

 

ID=1, is the document ID which u want to update

lableDate is the lable form which date is written like - 30/12/2018

Thanks for getting back to me.

 

This the current statement I have

Patch(Cars,LookUp(Cars,Callsign=Value(Label27.Text),{LastRota:Value(Label26.Text)}))

 Cars = List name

Label27 holds the number of the vehicle of the record to update (ID).

Label26 holds the date I need to patch into the LastRota column

 

When the button is pressed it is just creating a new blank record in the Cars sharepoint list

 

Any ideas?

Youhave to close your lookup formula with parenthesis .

 

use this :

Patch(Cars,LookUp(Cars,Callsign=Value(Label27.Text)),{LastRota:Value(Label26.Text)})

please accept my earlier reply as a solution if it works else let me know if any issues.

Hi,


I have tried this and now the Patch command doesn't apepar to be doing anything.  It has not updated the record I wanted and It hasn't created a blank record in my sharepoint list, i'm not sure what it has done.

It is not showing any errors either

Did you use 'DateValue' instead of 'Value' when trying to update date?
