I'm unable to save a data that is populated into a clipboard into a data table we are already having. What we are trying to do is to take some fields from a UI form and save it into a datatable. can anyone give a suggestion on this.

Thanking you in advance :)

Are you adding a new row or updating an existing one?
When adding a new row make sure that you generate the row ID and that there is no primary key conflict? Also, make sure that all the deferred save are committed to the DB.

I guess you forgot to mention commitwitherrorhandling after obj-save.

Without commit step, you can't store the data into DB though your activity works perfectly.

What is the difference between  the  activity "Save"  and the method "Obj-Save" ?

The Obj-Save method uses properties on the page to derive the internal key under which it will be saved. This method can create a new database instance or overwrite a previous instance with that key.
Obj-Save method does not always cause the object to be written immediately to the database. Often, developers use this method perform a "deferred write" operation. In such cases, later execution of the Commit method, in the same Thread, completes the database update.
You can reverse the effect of an Obj-Save method — if it has not yet been committed — with the Obj-Save-Cancel or the Rollback method.

Thanking u
