Patch function not working

Hi everyone, 

fairly new and relative novice at this PowerApps thing. 

I am trying to make an app that makes it possible for my coworkers to "order" lunch, basically just put into a list whether they are eating lunch in the cantina that day so that the kitchen employees can know how much food to prepare. 

I am trying to create an app in which employees can put in the date, their employee number and their initials, and then press "order" and this information will go to a sharepoint list. 

However when i use the Patch or Collect function it doesn't register any of the things i put after "Patch(Listname," it is almost like it does not understand that the comma is there and doesn't allow me to move on so for example when I put "Patch(Listname, Defaults(Listname);" It does not register Defaults or (Listname) the second time, See attached picture. 

Anyone got any idea why this might be, or whether i am just making a mistake, as i said relatively new to this 🙂

Re: Patch function not working

Hi @TCH 

 

Can you try to use semicolon(;) instead of comma(')? This differs location to location. Please try out your expression as:
Patch(Listname;Defaults(Listname);{col1:"Value1"})
 
Hope this Helps!

Re: Patch function not working

Thanks very much, that worked like a charm 🙂 

Do you know why that is, every single video or even syntax/function list with explanations, describes how one should use commas? 🙂

Re: Patch function not working

Hi @TCH 

 

There are few things that are based on regional settings in the PowerApps and comma/semicolon is one of them. For most of the locations, comma is supported and hence most of the blogs points towards using it.
