Unable to Patch a Collection

We have several Production Apps (SQL as DataSource) that have not been edited in weeks, that suddenly do not allow Patching a Collection. They give error: Invalid Argument type (Table) Expecting a Record. In my experience this would indicate that the Collection doesn't exactly match the fields of the Table it is attempting to write to; however we haven't edited the SQL server tables/settings or the PowerApp in weeks.

 

On some apps, we were able to get back up by removing the Data Source and re-adding it; however, this only works from within the Dev Studio. As soon as you save/close/re-open the PowerApp, the Error returns.

 

Is anyone else experiencing the issue?

No, Patch allows for passing a Colection as well.

The error has since fixed itself in the past few hours. I assume it's from Microsoft updates.

Re: Unable to Patch a Collection

It expects a single row in the patch and your query returns more than 1 row. You could try adding a first() arround the query?
