Hi @Anil-470f, I think you are nearly there. Here are a couple of pointers.

Assuming that you have a table called NotifcationType and you are trying to create an edit screen for the EmailBodies for each different notification type. I assume you want to pick a notification type from the Type drop down, see what the EmailBody of the notification is and save it. That's what I'm reading from your thread and screenshot; if I'm wrong let me know.

Here is what I'd do:

  1. Make sure that the Data Field where you have InitialMigration in your screenshot is called "Picklist"; also make sure it is a variable not shared. See my screenshot.

  2. Put the EmailBody in a separate Block. Set that block's data =$[Picklist] and the field itself (the one that shows #NAME? in your screenshot) set that to =[Email] (and mark it editable if you want to change the EmailBody, and leave it Shared if you want the edits to be saved automatically in the table). See the screenshot below.

You should now be able to cycle through all your Types and edit their EmailBody easily. Because the =[Email] Data Cell is Shared (aka. tied to the table itself, as "stored" for you in the choice in the $[Picklist]) you will automatically be making changes in the table directly. No need to add any actions on the Done button to do the saving. This method does not allow you to validate input data, but it will allow you to quickly edit any EmailBody for any Type.

There is a wizard that helps create the edit screen for you automatically. You can read more about how to do field validation here:

Hope this helped.
