Welcome to the PowerApps “Collections Cookbook”.
Inside you will find over 50 examples of how to do various tasks with Collections. Each page contains code and a visual to show what the code is doing.
COPY + PASTE code from the cookbook into your own app. Just change the Collection name and column names to match your own.
Add the app to a Microsoft Teams tab for instant access. I like to keep the Collections Cookbook close by while coding PowerApps. That way I can quickly look for code to solve the problem I am having and the solutions are all in one place.

I wish you the best of luck in building your PowerApp!
Amazing! This is very much appreciated.
I hope that there will be an additional update about camera , image and add picture control too!!!!
Kudos to @mdevaney !!!!
Yes you are right, it is not the same as Zip package import.
The technique here: How To Open .MSApp Files is the one which would work for files attached in this showcase that are .msapp
Improved this pattern
Example 4 - Add 2 Columns from another table
Now it is called
Example 4 - Add All Columns from another table
This way as many columns as are in the other table will be added... not just 2.
how to create a variable within an application and have a selection field and a quantity field?
In this case, the total value below is the product of the item record selected by the user, at the value entered by the user.
It is not possible to assemble a variable that reads the selection data of the registered item.
Can you help me?
