I experienced exact same problem and prior never had this happen.



This seems to some functionality crack issue.

Is their any other way to upadate the list.

Submitform(Form_name) will update the list, right?

Hi @Naresh,


Could you please share more details about the error message?


The patch() function works from my testing.


To verify if there are any changes that preventing the patch to work, please check:

1. If there are any more fields been marked as required,

2. Check the List permission to make sure the current account has the proper rights to update the list,

3. Verify the connection string, take a try to delete the SharePoint Connection and add it again to check.
