Table function

Applies to: Canvas apps Desktop flows Model-driven apps Power Platform CLI

Creates a temporary table.


The Table function creates a table from an argument list of records or tables.

The result table's columns are the union of all the columns from all the argument records and tables. A blank value is added to any column for which a record doesn't include a value.

A table is a value in Power Apps, just like a string or a number. You can specify a table as an argument for a function, and functions can return a table as a result. Table doesn't create a permanent table. Instead it returns a temporary table made of its arguments. You can specify this temporary table as an argument for another function, visualize it in a gallery, or embed it in another table. Fore more information, see working with tables.

You can also create a single-column table with the [ value1, value2, ... ] syntax.


Table( RecordOrTable1 [, RecordOrTable2, ... ] )

  • RecordOrTable(s) - Required. The records or table to add to the result table. If a table is provided, the records of the table are added to the resulting table as if they had been individually added.

Table( Untyped )

  • Untyped - Required. Untyped object that represents a table or array. Acceptable values are dependent on the untyped provider. For JSON, the untyped object is expected to be a JSON array. Regardless of the content type of the Untyped array, the resulting table is a single-column table of Untyped objects.


  • Set the Items property of a listbox to this formula:

    Table( {Color: "red"}, {Color: "green"}, {Color: "blue" } )

    The listbox shows each color as an option.

  • Add a text gallery, and set its Items property to this function:

    Table( {Item: "Violin123", Location:"France", Owner:"Fabrikam"}, {Item:"Violin456", Location:"Chile"} )

    The gallery shows two records, both of which contain the name and location of an item. Only one record contains the name of the owner.

  • This formula combines standard sizes with extended sizes into a single table

    Table( { Value: "XS" }, [ "S", "M", "L" ], { Value: "XL" } )
