Getting Started

Below is a quick one-minute video on how to quickly get started with SQL Stored Procedures using PowerFx.

The steps are:

  • Create SQL Connector within Connections. Ensure you have a SQL Server connector defined within your solution if you do not already, and that it has a custom Stored Procedure.
  • Enable SQL Server Stored Procedures within Upcoming Features. This is available from the Canvas Power App settings menu.
  • Add SQL as a Data Source within Power App.
    • Click on Data within the Maker app.
    • Add Data, and select your SQL Connector as a source.
    • Enter a SQL Server Name, and Database Name when prompted
    • Add your required Tables and Stored Procedures within Choose a table screen.
      • If the Stored Procedure is to be used in a gallery (i.e. the results are in the form of a collection of records) then select ‘Safe to use for galleries and tables’.
  • Now you are ready to use your SQL Stored Procedure. For example, to call a stored procedure you could write: dboTable.spMyStoredProcedure(input.text)
