I am having a heck of a time trying to understand the syntax of powerapps.
I have a background in SQL and I am very comfortable with it. This is not SQL :(.
I have an SQL database. My SQL database was built correctly, with the min amount of repeating data. It seems like Powerapps wants me to have 1 giant table with everything on it instead of multiple tables that are related and joined.
Here is what I need to understand:
Example - I have 3 tables with information I need from each in a gallery.
Table 1 - UPC_Details
Columns (UID) UPC_ID, Brand_ID, Cost, Created_Date
Table 2 - Brand_ID
Coulmns (need to join to UPC_Details Brand_ID) (UID) Brand_ID, Brand_Name, Company_Contact_ID...
Table 3 - UPC_received
Columns (UID) UPC_Received_ID, (need to join to table UPC_Details so users know what item they are looking at when the UPC is scanned) UPC_ID, Cases_received, Date_received...
I am sure you can see where this is going.
I need my users to be able to see specific data that I normally would use a join to reference. I do not know if I should be building a collection onvisble, or something else entire. Nor do I undertand the syntax Powerapps uses. I am extremely dissapointed with the resources for Powerapps, as I do not feel these questions are well answered and I am sure I am not the only user with this problem.
Thank you in advance to anyone willing to help me out with this.

Hi All, I'm working on a similar issue. I am trying to join two data sources together using the card number in both tables to show which loyalty program name that card number is associated to. I have been using filter and the lookup function but I'm still having no luck. I am trying to display the field "loyaltyprogramname" in a label box.
Below are the two tables.
RetailLoyaltycards: Card Number
RetailLoyaltyCardTiers: Card Number , Loyalty Program Name
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I have used the expression to populate the Data Table and I am successful in doing it for 2 tables ( 1 Main Table and 1 Look u Table). There is one more column in main table which i want to lookup in another secondary table.
How to do that? Pls guide.
@CarlosFigueira Same scenario in my case, I want 2 field from 2 MSD365 F&O Table.
Where I add this formula? Can I add this on form Item property? Or It's Just only for DataTable control.
Thanks in advance!
How about Right Table in Join? I am able use Left Table in Join. However I am using Addcolumns(filter (Table1, XXX = "XXX"), "ZZZ", Lookup(Table2, ID= Table1[@ID]).
