Exporting data out of Airtable


#1

Does anyone have experience with exporting their data and how it effects relational links, etc?

I am loving the features of the program but I am reluctant to enter all of my data into Airtable only for my employer to decide they no longer want to use the software.

As I recall, relational links are exported as an array of, well, labels I guess one might call them, with each label in the array representing the primary field of the linked record. (That is, if you have a linked-record field that links to three records with the primary field equal to ONE, TWO, and THREE, the field once exported will be "ONE,TWO,THREE".) How easily that converts to another DBMS depends on the DBMS, I guess — but it seems pretty straightforward…
