Link to another record - field selection [Jan 21]

:raising_hand_man: PaulPhillips asked

Good day, I am very new to nocodb, I have two tables, TableA and TableB. TableB has 3 columns, A,B and C. If I create a Link Between Table A and B, is it possible to select which field I see from Table B?

link between table (link to another record field) will display primary value of the other table. to see a different field from Table B, you will have to change the primary value field of Table B.

to change primary value of a table- click menu-down button associated with that column, and click on set-primary value.

Was this possible? I’m trying to do the exact same thing.
