Patching problem

Hi all,

I'm new to powerapps and I have a problem which looks simple:

H9 is a 4 column table located in my onedrive (Excel),  I'm trying to write records to, ussing the function:

 

                                 Patch(H9, Defaults(H9) ,  {Date="1-Jan-2018", Name:"Ariel", Ar:"1", Dep:"1"})

 

The error: powerapps does not recognizes H9 as source and sometimes 'invalid arguments' is announced.

Please advice.

Thanks,

Ari

Ok so just as I said previously... replace the code what you got in OnSelect property with

 

ClearCollect(NewRec,{Date: DatePicker2.SelectedDate,Name:TextInput1.Text,Ar:"1",Dep:"1"});Patch(H,Defaults(H),First(NewRec))

I did and without any change. Patch does not recognize the table H as Datasource.

Right so you didn't create a connection to your database. Follow the instruction (option1) I have send you previously. If you do it corrctly you will have the datasorce listed there with blue icon (as you can see it on my picture) and name H. If the name is different you will have to change it also in your OnSellect property Patch

 

File -> Connections..

then from your web borwser

Create a connection -> Chose OneDrive (or OneDrive for busineses) -> Log in

...and so on
