Write Back to SQL - Default screens

I have created app using Excel , I see 3 screens created Browse Screen, Details Screen and Edit Screen.

Similarly when i created with SharePoint, i can see all the 3 screens, but when created with SQL table, i see only only Browse screen and Details Screen. I have installed on premises gateway to connect with SQL. is it expected behavior. I tried edit screen, but didn't work .  How do I get the edit screen by default. Am is missing anything? Should I get a premium connector for this ?

Hi @satyakanth 

This typically happens when you don't have a primary key on your table.

Can you confirm that you have a primary key defined on your table?

Two option:
1. Insert a button on one of the Screens (detail or Browse), the put EditForm(YourFormName). When you click, it should turn it  to edit. To go back, Use:
    NewForm(YourFormName) ---New entries or
   ViewForm(YourFormName) --for view

 

 OR

 

2. For default Edit form. Duplicate one of the screens. Select the form and on the Defaultmode property change it to edit:
