Unable to fetch the data using Lookup function

Hello All,

 

I am new to Powerapps, i have 2 datasources namely 

1. ScanData1 :  URN, InoutDate, User

2. Preregister : URN, CompanyName, Visitor Name

 

Both of them have URN as the common field.

 

I want to get the data from Preregister Database : CompanyName and VisitorName 

 

Please advice how to go about this

Hi,

 

Could you please help me on the issue. I have used lookup value from different table and saving all the fields to one table in SQL. 

But the problem is Powerapps shows correct data once i scan it, however when i check in SQL table it shows wrong data. 

I have attached 3 screensnips in one attachement.

One is formula of powerapps

two is main table from where the lookup is happening

third is the final data coming from powerapps.

 

Please advise.

What is the formula for visitor lookup

Hi,

 

I have used the below formula for sending the data to SQL

 

Collect('[dbo].[ScanData1]', {URN: urn.Text, InOutDate: Now(), User: User().FullName, 'Visitor Name': visitornamelookup.Text, 'Company Name': companylookup.Text}); Select(BarcodeScanner1)

 

I am able to get the lookup data in app but once i click save button using the above formula, its not saving the correct data.

Please in the last reply, i asked that you show the lookup formula

Try this:

Patch('[dbo].[ScanData1]',Defaults('[dbo].[ScanData1]', {URN: urn.Text, InOutDate: Now(), User: User().FullName, 'Visitor Name': visitornamelookup.Text, 'Company Name': companylookup.Text}); Select(BarcodeScanner1)

 

Are the unknown records part of some records in the table or completely unknown

Hi ,

 

I have attached formula of both saving to sql and also lookup formuala.

 

I have used the patch function and its not working. Please advise.

Are you patching from a Gallery or a form. If a gallery the formula may not be the same.

Patching from gallery

Use this:

ForAll(GalleryName.AllItems, Patch('[dbo].[ScanData1]', Defaults('[dbo].[ScanData1]'),{URN: urn.Text, InOutDate: Now(), User: User().FullName, 'Visitor Name': visitornamelookup.Text, 'Company Name': companylookup.Text}); Select(BarcodeScanner1)
