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

Re: Unable to fetch the data using Lookup function

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)

Re: Unable to fetch the data using Lookup function

Two questions:

1. Is urn in the Table Preregister?
2. Is urn a number field? If so put: Value(ThisItem.URN)

Re: Unable to fetch the data using Lookup function

I was able to save the data. But however the lookup works fine in the Powerapps, but when it goes to SQL it showing wrong numbers.

 

For ex: attached URN one is abc company and visitor name is nagaraj

and other is def company and visitor name is jagadeesh

 

But SQL shows both as nagaraj and abc company only.

 

Please advice. Attached is the SQL data
