Concatenated strings as primary keys [Apr 08]

:raising_hand_man: Marian asked

Hi, it is not possible to use concatenated strings as primary keys?

:raising_hand_man: wkw replied

what do you mean by concatenated strings? like two columns with string type? like composite PK ?

:raising_hand_man: Marian replied

Like using a formula column and using concat with 4 columns and make it a PK so i can reference search it

:raising_hand_man: wkw replied

oh. in this case you cannot, as formula column is a virtual column.

:raising_hand_man: Marian replied

So my best option is to make it via the API and use that column as PK?

Airtable supports formula column as primary value. Do you expect to include this powerful feature in nocodb in the future?
