Allow us to update a numeric field to null/blank value

If you have assigned a value to a numeric field (in Sharepoint for example) you cannot delete this value or update it to null/blank

This is a basic requirement. Why so long to fix!! Unable to Patch a null person on an SP list.

One way to go around this is to change the field type to Straight Line text in the sharepoint list and then change the text format to TextFormat.Number in Powerapps. works for me

This is definitly a requirment for CDS. I know it is available in SQL now but this needs to be in CDS.

Can we get an update on this VERY OLD problem that was marked as "Planned" years ago?  Null() or Blank() can be acheived by opening my SharePoint list and manually deleting the entered value, so why can't I acheive this through a Patch from my PowerApp?

Has there been an update on this? It's been 2 years.....

Level: Power Up

I agree, it is completely unacceptable that a solution to this basic and reasonable fix is not being delivered urgently. 


If this is the expected support level for PowerApps issues then I am re-evaluating whether it is worth adopting as a platform.
