Show Select styling on related fields

I would like to use a relation to a Select field in another table, but also have it display the same colour as the source table displays. I.e., if I have the select value as blue on the source table, I would also like it to be blue when used as a relation in another table. Currently it only pulls through the value, and not the colour. Is this just a limitation of the relations, or is there a way to do it?

Welcome to the community, @Matt_Rogowski! :smiley: The color assignment for single- and multiple-select fields is just an extra bit of styling that Airtable applies to the field itself. When referencing those field types elsewhere, Airtable only passes the data, not the associated styling. To my knowledge there’s no way to access this styling info, not even via the API.

One way to add some color to such fields in a form that will stick with it elsewhere is to use emojis as part of the selection definitions.
