Re: Saving text fields in a SQL view

Hi @rahulmathur7 ,

I'm afraid it's not supported in PowerApps currently.

SQL view is read-only in PowerApps.

You could only display data from SQL view, you can not update data of SQL view.

Here's a doc about connect with SQL view:

Please note these key words:

  • At this time, SQL Views are read-only in PowerApps
  • You cannot update or create records through a view, but you can perform these operations directly on a SQL Table.
  • You will be able to use key columns from the view to update /create rows in other tables.  You will need to update the individual tables that fed into the view.  Be sure to include in the view primary keys for any lookups so you can easily interact with the base tables.
  • If you would like to call Stored Procedures, you will need to use Microsoft Flow at this time (
