Transfer data between data sources



I am currently working on a PowerApp and was wondering if it was possible to transfer data from one datasource view to another.
So, from the detailscreen, working with datasource1, I want to go to an editscreen, working with datasource2.

For this PowerApp, I am creating a book library app with datasource1 being all the books and datasource2 being used to lend out books. So, from the detailscreen I want to bring over the book title to the edit screen. 

Is this possible?


Thanks in advance,

Re: Transfer data between data sources

Hi GijsVerbeeck,


If you want to show all the books, please consider to show data on a Gallery but not on Display Form.

Then you may need to stimulate a join operation on the two data source. Please see the post from @rgruian on this thread about “Can I add fields from multiple data sources into a single gallery of items?” for more details


Please try to show all the books on a gallery, then navigate to the edit screen for lend out books. Before this, you should try to join operation on the two data source.


Please try this on your side, if you need more help, please feel free reply.


Best regards,
