Hi Justin, 


Can you please try this again (create new AFT using Budget Tracker template) but this time delete data from all tables except the Categories table? In the Categories table, just delete the data from CategoryName column and input other categories you might want to use. You can add more categories if you would like. Please don't touch the data in the _PowerAppsId_ column (you don't need to fill this column for new categories you are adding either. 



If you don't have as many categories, you can delete the rows. Say I only have 3 categories, I'll delete the below rows but leave the top 3 row and change only the CategoryName column for those 3 rows. 




For other tables, delete all rows for all columns including data in the _PowerAppsId column. Save the Excel file. 


Now opening the app you had created from the template (and had saved to cloud). It should work. Let me know if it doesn't and I can walk you through step by step. 





Hi litran,


I followed your steps , but it still doesn't work, still have error,  can you walk me steps by steps?
