Two date pickers

Hi.

 

I'm using an excel spredsheet as datebase and I've got ther two columns with dates. In app I'm using two date pickers. Both are configurated in the same way. When I submit the form one DateValue is accepted and the second one not - I'm getting error - invalid value please use a valid ISO8601 date... and I'm realy confused. 
I think, I've tried everything, but whitout success.

How does the data in your Excel file look?  Is it possible that you are dealing with different type of date formats in the Excel file for those two columns?  The only way to really "tell" PowerApps what type of columns you have in your Excel is to have them formatted properly in the Excel table.  For example, a column of numbers will be treated as a numeric column.  If you wanted that to be treated as text, you would need to format the column in Excel to be text. Same thing for dates and other types.

It sounds like it have misinterpreted the type of date in your second date column.  I would take a look over that first.

 

I hope this is helpful and leads to a solution for you.

Hi @sulrik 

 

Agree with @RandyHayes 's suggestion, could you please check the Format of your Date Columns in your Excel Table?

And you can also use Patch function instead of SubmitForm to test whether there are the same issues.
