Hi @Anonymous ,

How did you add the excel to data source?

If you connect the Excel data to PowerApps via Import From Excel connector, Please notice that the excel table imported in this way is static and read-only, you cannot modify it from within PowerApps.

You need upload the Excel to OneDrive for business, and create OneDrive for business connection in App to select the Excel Tables.

Hope this helps.

Insert a button and OnSelect put;

EditForm (YourFormName)

 

After clicking on the button, the form should be editable.
