I am encountering something strange- a checkbox brought onto my sheet from another sheet in the same airtable book is being recognized by formulas when it is checked, but is not being recognized when unchecked. The field is called 'Exclude" and this formula works:
and it returns a ‘1’ for all records where exclude is checked
However this formula does NOT work- it’s returning a 0 for every record
I tested the exact above on a boolean checkbox that is a field on the sheet itself (eg, not brought in by lookup), and the IF and the IF(NOT( both work as expected
Is there something about the way a lookup formula treats un-checked boolean values that is not returning valid data? when accessing the same field via an API I get FALSE for the unchecked rows, however in airtable’s own formulas, it’s not recognizing it as unchecked .
Stumped, and need some help,
