populate a text box from a field in a record in a data table

In powerapps, how do you populate a text box with data from a field in a record in a data table or data from table itself? It seems like it should be easy but it doesn't appear to be. I just want to populate a text box from a datatable or table, but I can't seem to find a solution to this.

 Thanks to everybody who helped me along with this question.

any ideas?

Perfect, thanks! 😀


Was searching for a very simple solution to display a info text (only when necessary, like "Please do not create new entries in week 10" or other notes) on the homescreen without editing the PowerApp. By adding a text label with text =




It takes the text from a sharepoint list value and displays it (or not if empty).


So any user of a specific team (with access to the sharepoint list, but not owner of the powerapp) can put a text into the field "ColumnTitle" or just delete the text in the field if no text needs to be shown in the powerapp.

It worked for me. Example : First([@'Vendor Request']).ID
