I have encountered an contradictory issue wherein two schemas which are topologically identical are treated differently; one works fine and the other throws a circular reference error.
I have distilled the issue into a very simple example base. Here’s a link:
Table 1 contains a record which is linked to another record contained in Table 2. The record’s name is a function of a value looked up in the linked record.
Everything is copacetic.
However, if I attempt to synthesize the records into a single table, AirTable gets hung up on a circular reference.
My questions are:
Why are these two schemas fundamentally different from each other?
What are my options for getting around this circular reference? I want to keep both records in the same table, and I need the name to be a function of the lookup field.
Thanks in advance!
