Patch local table - The first argument of "Patch" should be a collection

Hi All

In my app I am creating a table with screen  OnVisible - 

      Refresh(SP_List);   UpdateContext({LocalTable: SP_List})

And then I need to update that table, but getting "The first argument of 'Patch' should be a collection" when trying to do 

     Patch(LocalTable, First(Filter(LocalTable, Title="MyTitle")), {Value: 10}) 

So how can I update that LocalTable table?

Thanks

Hi @RomanKorchak 

 

UpdateContext creates a local context variable and the Patch works with the collections, can you try to update the expression on the "OnVisible" property of the screen as: 
 
Refresh(SP_List);   ClearCollect(LocalTable,SP_List)
 
Hope this Helps!

Depending on some condition I need to use different  SP List, so rather then using 20 line Select formula everywhere I need to use data from that SP List, I just create a table with screen OnVisible and than use that table everywhere else, but need to update that table on few actions so looking for a way to do it.

Hey @RomanKorchak 

 

Have you tried the above expression to create a collection rather than a context variable? You can update the collection in the same way using the Patch function.
 
Hope this Helps!
