Patch to 2 Dfferent Data Sources

Is it possible to Patch to two different SQL tables? For example:

 

 

Patch('[dbo].[Test]', Defaults('[dbo].[Test]'),'[dbo].[Test2]', Defaults('[dbo].[Test2]'), {Testdata: TextInput_1.Text, Testdata2: Option1.Selected.Value, Testdata3: Option2.Selected.Value})

Hi,

This is possible. Any time that you want to perform more than one action with a Button (or any object with the OnSelect property), use a semicolon to separate actions:

 

 

Patch('[dbo].[Test]', Defaults('[dbo].[Test]'),
	{Testdata: TextInput_1.Text, 
		Testdata2: Option1.Selected.Value, 
		Testdata3: Option2.Selected.Value
	}
);
Patch('[dbo].[Test2]', Defaults('[dbo].[Test2]'), {Testdata: TextInput_1.Text, Testdata2: Option1.Selected.Value, Testdata3: Option2.Selected.Value } )

 

This formula means, "Patch the data to [dbo].[Test], then patch the same data to [dbo].[Test2]." There's no limit to the number of actions you can chain.

Thank you! I'll give that a try this morning.

That worked! Now comes the fun part of writing a formula that writes to 8 different tables. Thanks again @mr-dang

I posted in another thread, but after coming across this thread, wanted to pose my question here also.  The data for my app is a SharePoint list.  I have a choice column with 1. Report an Issue 2. Make a Suggestion 3. Ask a Question.  If the user selects 1 or 2, I would like the new item to go to the original data source.  However, if they select 3, I would like to patch the data to a SharePoint discussion board.  

First, is this possible?

Second, if so, how would I write the formula to patch to the DB?

 

Thank you.

 

You are going to want to wrap the patch in an IF statement to check for your selection.  In this case, if 1 or 2 is selected, then the first patch will run, else the second.  Note:  There is now a Comma between the patches (not a semicolon) as it is now separating the clauses of the IF statement. 

 

If( 
(MyChoice.Selected.Value = 1 or MyChoice.Selected.Value = 3)

Patch('[dbo].[Test]', Defaults('[dbo].[Test]'),
	{Testdata: TextInput_1.Text, 
		Testdata2: Option1.Selected.Value, 
		Testdata3: Option2.Selected.Value
	}
),

Patch('[dbo].[Test2]', Defaults('[dbo].[Test2]'), 
	{Testdata: TextInput_1.Text, 
		Testdata2: Option1.Selected.Value, 
		Testdata3: Option2.Selected.Value
	}
)
)
