Hi Airtable Community,

I have the error as shown in the subject in my script. I am struggling to determine the field that it is referring to. Is there a way to identify fields by this "code" or am I missing something? 

I have no linked fields in my table.

Thank you!

Hi @Ryan_Banks ! You can visit the Airtable API page, search & open your base and then search for that field id. That will show you which field it is. Best, Rupert

There are several ways to find the IDs of fields. One of the easier ways is to use the Table's "Manage Fields" feature and turn on field IDs. Note that the search feature in "Manage Fields" does not search field IDs and you cannot currently sort by field ID, so you have to manually scan the list. Sometimes I find it easier to write a quick script that shows field ids.

You can see a few other methods here.
