Can I change the range of a register without changing the linked record with another base?

Hello Community!

How are you? My name is Federico and I am having a question about the bases.

I have a big base where there are 5 tables inside.
I need to change one of the column so I can create a new base to add the CRM.
The question is:

I have the column that says “Name” and i want to change the first column to a formula and then concatenate the name and surname. The link will be the same name but changes the field to a formula instead of the short desc.
This table is connected to a table that give course to all the clients orders.

Can I change the range of a register without changing the linked record with another base?
If I change the row that is linked to another table, it will crush?

I will be waiting for an answer!

Welcome to the community, @Federico_Ades!

I’m not sure what you mean by “changing the range of a register”.

However: Yes, you can change the contents of your first column (i.e. the primary field), and all of your links will remain intact. So you don’t need to worry about that.

Airtable actually links records behind-the-scenes by using an internal record ID number, so you don’t have to worry about changing the value of your primary field! :slight_smile:
