Edit form not displaying data

Hello All


I have created a list on a powerpages portal. Under the details in powerpages, "view details" and "Edit form" have been enabled. I have created a basic form and linked it to the relevant table. Despite which table I try to view the details or edit the individual records, I am not able to see the data. the edit form and view form are both blank.


Any assistance would be appreciated.

So i got help from microsoft support and the problem was that I needed to have given specific append and append to access to all the lookup fields in the form. This is required for an edit form.

Hi @Zaid-Aboobaker ,

What is the mode and record source of the basic form? Is it Edit and Query string?

Hi @ Gopika_G


So the form is enabled from the list settings in the powerpage itself. See below.

This then allows me to click on each record in the subgrid and select edit or view. All the records were created by me with Contact access enabled to the table, giving full rights. The pic below shows the subgrid populated with the items I have created.

despite this, when I click on edit or even view, the details of the record dont come through. See below.

Can you please share the form configurations from Portal Management?Like this.





So i have realised that i needed to create another form, with the Mode = Edit. And this has now allowed me to see the record. However, when I try to edit the record, it gives me a permissions error. I am logged in with the same user that created it. 

Does the table you are using in the form have any relationship established with the contact table?

yes. I have created a relationship with the contact table. See below.



Check whether the contact column in that table have the user value filled.




Hi @Zaid-Aboobaker 


For your edit form make sure you add web roles. Screenshot below for reference 




Note: In Portal management > Contact > Select your name > Related > Web Roles > Add the relevant web roles ( EX: Administrator) 


Once done. Hit Sync and preview 


Hope it helps.
