Re: Trying to use a button to update several fields

Hi amarion,


To test this issue, I create an app based on SharePoint list, then I use the UpdateIf function to update several fields to data source.


The function I am using is:

UpdateIf(ListB,ID=BrowseGallery1.Selected.ID,{Title: DataCardValue15.Text,bpsf:Value(DataCardValue9.Text)})


Not sure with the column type of “SubstationsID”. If it is a Number column type, please use a Value function to convert a string of text to a number.


Please see more details about Value function at here:


And about the column name, we shouldn’t use the Column name we have specified in the list, with the form selected, click the highlighted ellipsis, then you would get the valid field name. We should use this field name in the function.


Best regards,
Mabel Mao
