First of all, I know this isn’t strictly an Appsheet question as I use an external service as well, but I was hoping someone could maybe identify the issue anyways.
The problem is, that I have a table of “units” in my app. These units have an ID which is a concatenation of their order number and 4 randomly generated numbers. I then also have a barcode for each unit which is an Image column using the following URL:
In other words, the barcode is simply just the ID of the unit. The weird thing is, sometimes these two, the ID of the unit and the ID on the barcode, doesn’t match, and I really don’t understand why. Both columns are “Initial value” formulas, and whenever I test it myself, the barcode always matches the ID of the unit, however, other users of the app have been running into this issue.
For instance, the ID of the unit may be: “MyP7413280” but the ID on the barcode is “MyP4717685”.
My guess is that the barcode is generated with an ID, and then somehow, the ID is changed after without the barcode updating correctly, but, I don’t see how this is possible.
Any suggestions and ideas are appreciated.
