Hi @neethup ,

What do you mean " connected to two datasource in my edit form"?

One edit form could only have one data source.

Do you mean that your app is connected with 2 data sources, the edit form is used to update one of them, and you want to create a new item in the other data source at the same time?

If so, try this formula:

ClearCollect(test,Form1.Updates);  //save the data in the form as a collection
SubmitForm(Form1); //submit the data to table1
//create a new item in table2 by using the data of this collection
(you could choose the fields that you want to update by using shwocolumns function)

Please replace table2,field1,field2 with the table names and fields name that you want to use.
