added fields not showing up

On my app I add an edit form field and then add a field from my linked onedrive excel sheet. The field shows up when I am editing the power app, but when I press play the field is not visible.

Hi @Drrickryp ,

 

Do you mean the form shows 'No item to display' when you preview the app?

That is because you didn't bind the record(you want to edit) to the Form, so the form shows 'No item to display' when it is in Edit Mode.

The solution is that if you want to edit the existing record, you need to set Form to Edit Mode and configure the Item property to the record you want to edit. for example: bind the form the the first record of data source, then set Form.Item property to First('Data source') .

If you want to create a new record, just need to set Form to New mode.

You can switch the Form Mode in property panel, also you can try with EditForm/NewForm function. Reference: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/functions/function-form
