Copy sliced data to a table

Hi,

Is there a way that I can copy the result of a sliced data and paste it to the last row with data in another table? Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks.

I’m pretty sure you can do this:

I tried this but it seems to work on single entry only. Is there a bulk copy? The below is the slice i need to copy and i think it defeats my purpose if I have to copy it one by one.

Thank you!

No; you’d have to implement it yourself. It’s doable, though, and pretty straight-forward.

Could you elaborate some on what you’re trying to accomplish? That might help us offer better solutions.

I wonder if this may not wind up being what @MEC is looking for?

Currently, I input payments manually one-by-one on a payment table. The below slice result is where I monitor the amount and which payments are due for the day.

What I want to achieve is to automatically have the payments due for the day on the payment table by copying the slice result to the payment table so I don’t have to manually put it one-by-one. I hope it makes sense.

Thanks!

Thanks @Kirk_Masden. I’m studying this now.

Use a “Data: execute an action on a set of rows” to call multiple instances of the “Data: add new row to another table” action.

I’m reviewing “Looping with actions” app. I made a slice in the app named “add from loan” but I don’t know why I couldn’t find the file type “detail” like the slices i.e. add from list (slice) that were built already in the app.

I’ve been stuck for hours. Anybody that could help?

Thanks.

This is a little confusing:

Note that you can add your own views; you don’t have to use system-generated views.

I’ve added the “add from loan_detail” view manually. the add from list_form seem to be a system generated view and I couldn’t find out how it’s made.

Hi @Steve , sorry but can you recall if the below are system generated views? If yes, may I ask how did you do it? I’m still studying the app and I’m stuck in this.

Thank you in advance!

Hopefully apparent in the image below, system-generated views are the same white as the page background, (e.g., Example_Detail and Example_Form) while user-defined views are off-white/very-light tan (e.g., Example_Dashboard and Example_Deck).

Given that, the views you pictured are likely system-generated.

Got it. May I ask how you did the system-generated slice detail and form?

This is from your Looping with actions app: https://www.appsheet.com/samples/Examples-of-loops-using-actions?appGuidString=7b9ae746-1f51-4ecb-8c39-b322e1c12da6

Thank you

Thanks @Steve i have successfully incorporated your "looping with actions " in my app. Thanks @Kirk_Masden and @Marc_Dillon.
