Powerapps a mess for developper ?

bug bug bug and bug. All the words for spending time in debugging  an apps with excel connector as database.

I have random error in writing my application in the excel database.

 

My database is composed of Text and numbers colonns. I have made an apps which works quite properly and then I make a change in the database (text date is transformed in number for example: week number ='23' before and now is 23.0 in database)

 

I have tried everything in the apps for updating: 

in the field update: 23 -> doesnt work, make an error

Value("23") -> doesnt work, make an error

Value("23,0") -> idem

"23" -> idem

Text(23)-> idem...

 

All the time the same error. I don't understand !

Last time for making work my apps I need to rebuild it from scrap...

Hi @Phil13100 ,

There are many other reasons not to use Excel as a data source to Power Apps - this article has some more of them. If you are going to grow this to any size (over 2000 items), then go to SharePoint now and most of this will go away.
