Hi @scorpio24 ,

 

Your DateCardValue is name of combo box. Have you tried the method I provided?

 

You need to check if DataCardValue.SelectedItems returns table in this format. The method use ForAll function traverse options to return a table.

vmengmlimsft_0-1713238419265.png

"Mail" and "DisplayName" come from each option in combo box. So, the value of each option should be record contains "Mail" and "DisplayName" columns. This is why I asked your combo box's Items.

 

According to the method, please try to update one person column firstly as bellow.

1.Items of DateCardValue54.

Office365Users.SearchUser()

2.Endorser1 field in the Patch formula.

{Endorser1: ForAll(DataCardValue54.SelectedItems,
               {Claims:"i:0#.f|membership|" & Lower(Mail),
                Department:"",
                DisplayName: DisplayName,
                Email: Mail,
                JobTitle:"",
                Picture:""
               }
           )}

Hi @v-mengmli-msft apologies as I think this is a Powerapps issue and not power automate 😞
However, if you can help me and to answer your question, I am using a DataCard value as I am using a Form. Here is the sample screenshot of my person column value:

Hi @v-mengmli-msft tried adding the O365 connection and the error was gone but when I clicked the submit button, the network patch error still persists.

Hi @scorpio24 ,

 

What is the error message?

 

Best regards,

Rimmon

Hi @v-mengmli-msft still this one: "Network error when using Patch function: The requested operation is invalid"

I also tried to check the patching one by one but still, same error:

 

scorpio24_0-1713248027113.png

 

Hi @scorpio24 ,

 

Does this error occur with every column? Or is it just Current Status that fails on update?

What is type of Current Status?

 

Best regards,

Rimmon

 

 

 

 

Hi @v-mengmli-msft this occurs with every column as I tried to check this one by one. Anyway, type of Current Status is single line of text only.

Hi @scorpio24 ,

 

{Value:"New"} is a record not Text column expected data type. Please try "New" and test again.

{'Current Status':"New"}

 

Hi @v-mengmli-msft Apologies for the confusion, 'Current Status' is a choice column, thus, used the Value. Also, I am wondering why it has that error. By the way, when I checked the SP list, the data is there and successfully saved so I wonder why the same error appears when I clicked the save button?

Hi @scorpio24 ,

 

Does Person column update successfully? Are there any formula on the button? Such as SubmitForm.

Try to add another button and just use Patch formula to check if the error will still show.

 

Best regards,

Rimmon
