Azure SQL Database with "views"

Hello - I have an SQL table with information about customers - with includes the countrycode.


I have a separate table with the countrycode and countryname.


In an SQL view I can show the customer name and the countryname.


We use PowerApps to add / amend data on customer and we have created the usual three frames for Browsing / Details / Editing.


The Browse and Details gallery are linked to the SQL view - while the Editing gallery is linked to the customer table.

We have issues once we wish to the submit(form) on the Editing frame.

My questions: do all 3 frames have to use the same data source?

Re: Azure SQL Database with "views"

Hi @Michel


You should be able to make this work.

In addition to setting the data source of your edit form to the Customer table, the other thing to do is to set the Item property of your edit form so that it refers to the correct record from the customer table.

To do this, you'd use the Lookup function. The syntax would look something like this:

LookUp('[dbo].[Customer], CustomerID=BrowseGallery1.Selected.CustomerID)

If the SubmitForm function still generates errors, feel free to post the error messages here.
