In PowerApps, I'm using a data source from a SharePoint list that has a forward slash as part of the field name. For example, there is a column named 'Edit/Rework'. I have a Gallery in PowerApps where I'm trying to assign that column to the 'text' property of a label via ThisItem.'Edit/Rework'. PowerApps gives an error "This formula uses scope, which is not presently supported for evaluation" How do you specify a column that contains a / in it? Is there an escape character that I can use?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I just realized what the issue is:
This is not an error. The panel under your formula editor is trying to evaluate the value of your formula. This is not always possible. In this case, it doesn't have a way to know which row to show, so it has no "scope". This is only used for troubleshooting, and will not affect your application.
When a formula can be evaluated, it will display the result:
In this case, I am asking for the field of a selected row, so it can properly evaluate the result.
You helped me realize that the slash '/' wasn't the problem. It was the data type. I had a column with a slash in it that was a Person data type and needed to add DisplayName to the end. For Example ThisItem.'Lead/Mgr'.DisplayName.
