The Link field name is wrong

The field name to identify the table (when linking a record) is often wrong.

“Field on this table that links to the records you want to summarize”

Any idea why this is and do others have this issue?

This is the name of the linked record field on which the rollup is based. Usually people name the linked record field after the linked table, but not always.

It looks like you have a linked record field named {Candidates} that links to the table [Applicants]. If you want the name of the field to match the table name, you can change that by renaming the {Candidates} field.

No, I think the field is wrong.

It’s happening all over the place on my airtable.

Tell me if I’m wrong.

See “Rates” vs “Rates-R”.

In your screen capture, the name of your linked table is [Rates-R]. The name of your field that links to that table is {Rates}. If you want the name of the field to match the table name, you need to find that field and rename it.
