Can you add records to a table via an Excel Table View?

Hi everyone,

I am trying to add records to a table via an Excel Table View. Using the example in the Table Views documentation, I am able to update existing records; however, any new records added are cleared once I submit the sheet. Is there additional code I can add to allow the Table View to write new records to the table?

Thanks!

Molly

You can add new rows back to your table via a table view by using the same principle of looping over the table view object but to differentiate the new rows you use the isDirty() flag in the spreadsheet rule and then using an insert SQL statement to write back.

Here's a community example for table view rules here

Sudarshan

Hi Sudarshan,

Thanks for your response! 

That makes sense, that's definitely the extra step that I am missing. It seems like I don't have access to view the example. Is there another way you could share?

Thanks so much!
