Update child records using Patch and parent id

Hello, I am searching for a way to update multiple child records using the parent id. I was using UpdateIf but there is an issue with using it for v8.1 of Dynamics CRM at the moment so I've resorted to looking for a workaround. I have seen several posts regarding using ForAll and Patch but none of them seem to work quite right with my scenario. So basically I have a parent record with multiple children and I need to set the status of each child depending on some critieria. Here is the UpdateIf function that was working and then stopped. Can anyone provide a ForAll Patch solution that would reproduce the outcome?

 

UpdateIf('Child DataSource', child_parentid=selectedParentId && child_statuscode=varStatusCode,{child_statuscode:287850002})

 

Thanks

Are there any error messages when it stops working?

 

The same scenario could be replaced by the forall and patch, the format should be:

Forall(RenameColumns('Child DataSource', "RecordId", "CRecordId" ),
if(child_parentid=selectedParentId && child_statuscode=varStatusCode,
Patch('Child DataSource', RecordId=CRecordId, {child_statuscode:287850002}) ) )

See if that formula would work in your scenario.
