Loading blank cells possible?

Hi all, going to try as detailed as possible with my intent. 

 

New to PowerApps and read through most of the starter literature.

 

I have my App idea and it a simple Database input using an Excel table as the source.

 

What I am making is a room check list you select a room number and check the headings and fill in the applicable parts.

 

Seemed simple but seems to be a problem. If I load the app with no data in the fields/columns and then enter data it writes to the excel sheet but does not show up in the app, is there some way of forcing it to do so?

No one else experiencing this? Had a look through the forums and have seen screenshots with people having blank data on their excel sheets, I must of missed a step?

Hi RPWade,

 

I'm not sure if I understand your issue correctly. I think you want to have an app that connected to your Excel table and then update the record inside the app. This app can be created automantically in PowerApps studio. In New > Start with your data > Select the connection you want to use and let PowerApps creates the app. Then you can update your table in the edit screen and the new record should show in your app as well.

Re: Loading blank cells possible?

Hi Mona,

 

Stages I have gone through:

Created my table in excel.

Created new app selecting the table.

I have about 8 columns in the table but only the first one "Room" is populated (with room numbers)

When I select an indivdual data piece (row) and then go to the edit screen I can input data and save it, it saves the the actual excel sheet but does not show on the app.

 

Is this easier to understand?

Hi RPWade,

 

That is exactly what I understood. But I cannot reproduce your issue. May I know where is your excel stored? If you create a new excel and create another app using the new table, will the issue reproduce?
