Patch function not working

Hi Community,


it is my first time I use the Pacth function and it seems like I don't really understand how the function can be used to Step 3) of the following scenario :


1) Select a List item in a Gallery > Selected Item is Stored in a Collection "Selection_Open" > Navigate to an Edit Form (OK)

2) Make a manual selection in a Dropdown for the item to add the "reasoncode" > "Stillstandsklassen_Open.SelectedText" (OK)
3) Save the selected Text from Dropdown back to the SQL table for the selected item (the one selected in Step 1 from the Gallery) > error "reasoncode" field is not found (maybe Syntax error?)


I just cant get the Patch function for 3) to work


Attached you find the screenshots, any help from a Pro user is appreciated a lot





If you are adding new entries, use Defaults in the Patch:

{reasoncode: Stillstandsklassen_Open.SelectedText.Value})

Hi @eka24 ,
nice, almost there.. now I actually get an error message when using the App (see attached "PK_ID" = Primary Key required). The Table does have a Primary ID so I guess somewhere between selecting the item on the Gallery and saving back the new reason code the link to the items ID is lost.

Hi, after some additional trial and error I found a formulary that works:

{reasoncode: Stillstandsklassen_Open.SelectedText.Value});;

@eka24 : thank you very much for guiding me into the right direction, after all it was just an issue of filtering out the right record based on the selected PK_ID

Thank you for sharing your issue. This will help other users!
