Re: Refreshing a data source does not pull in new fields

Solved: In items modify the Data source and after that put it back to what it was. It will refresh everything in the current table 😄

You erase some letters in items section and you put them back like before.

Re: Refreshing a data source does not pull in new fields

This would be a great workaround if it works... But my question was what items section are you mentioning? There are more than one place that deals with databases in PowerApps, can anybody please provide a screenshot of where you make the changes? The changes that I am making do not seem to have any affect....

This is clearly a BUG! And they again just marked this thread as "SOLVED"

Re: Refreshing a data source does not pull in new fields

- On the left-side menu you got Data sources, click on it.

- Find your data source, click on the triple dot, then click Refresh.

- Click on your Data Table or Form, that use the Data source.

- On right side you got a window with "Advanced" option, click on it.

- {Data Table (1)} In Data section, you got "Items" in this, you got your code.

- {Data Table (2)} Modify the [dbo].[yourdatasource] like: [dbo].[yourdource] and them put it back like before: [dbo].[yourdatasource]

- {Form (1)} Do the same step in {Data Table (1) and (2)}, but in "Data source" and "Item"

- Then Click on "Proprieties" where "Advanced" is.

- Click "Edit fields"

- Now you suppose to have the new fields

Re: Refreshing a data source does not pull in new fields

I've spent a LONG time on it doing this and that...

It did not work. No matter what I do trying to follow the instructions, it did not work (this *** PowerApps does not see new columns, period).
Could you please provide the instructions only for a Form (Not Data Table), step by step please. If you can include a screenshot: that would be so good! Thanks! : )
