Value length

Getting the error "Value must be at most 10 characters in length." I checked all my columns in SQL table and all of them are more than 10 characters, the shortest column is set to 15. Also since the whole forumla is underlined in red, I cannot tell which field Powerapp's is referring to. Thanks!

Re: Value length

so I figured out which field it was referring to, now it says Value must be at most 1 characters in length, not sure what that coudl possibly be. Any ideas?

Re: Value length

what kind of control is TypeDropdown??

I see them at the end of the Patch statement.


Also, if you are saving to a SQL DB and you have autoincrement numbers and Default fields, try to use a Defaults() in your Patch statement.   Patch([db], Defaults(), { } )

Hi @Eloy

I figured out the TypeDropdown, I had it entered incorrectly, thanks for pointing that out.

Re: Value length

I have the same error but only when I'm using the App on my phone. When I open it on my browser I don't see any error in the code.

Anyone have any idea what it might be?
