Insert data in SQL tables without Form

Hi everyone ... Then I have a problem. I have to create an application that takes data from different databases (MSSQL) and send this data to new tables in another DB (MSSQL). How can this be done without the form? I tried to do it with the Patch function but it gives me an error.These data are all taken from different databases and do not fit into a form. And I would like to pass them to a different table from where I took them.Someone can help me. ThanksCattura.PNG

Hello,

 

The Patch function is the way to go. What error did you get?

 

You need to have a primary key in your table to get Patch to work.

The name is not valid. Identifier not recognized.

This is my empty table.where I want to transfer the dataThis is my empty table.where I want to transfer the data

ERROR: The name is not valid. Identifier not recognizedERROR: The name is not valid. Identifier not recognized

Thanks!!!

Hi @Dumitru 

 

Could you please share more of your dropdown control's formula expression?

Do you want to patch the Dropdown selected value to your SQL table?

More information:

function-patch

 

For example I test as next:

Dropdown2.Items=["m","n","o","p"]

Button1.OnSelect=Patch('[dbo].[Tab_2019Test1]',Defaults('[dbo].[Tab_2019Test1]'),{ID:Value(TextInput1.Text),Nam:Dropdown2.Selected.Value})

 

(the green color ones are sql table name,control column name on my side, you can change to yours on your side,ID is the PK in my sql table)
