Hi All,

As a background, I currently have three tables in the same base.

1) An Idea Submission Table

2) A Rubric Table

3) A Summary Table

Individuals were able to use a Form to link their rubric scores to specific ideas. This created a column in the Idea Submission Table called 'Rubric' which linked all of the ideas with their specific rubrics.

I now need to take all of the rubrics and score the averages - something that I am able to do by linking the individual Rubric Scores on a third table called by Summary Score Table. However, I realized that rather than do it manually, I already had all of the linked scores.

I created a lookup column, and I am able to bring them in to the Table. However, they are not populating the scores. So, I was thinking I needed to use the second lookup column I have, which DOES WORK for Average Scores - but it will not let me copy and paste those linked records into this linked records lookup, and I cannot figure out how to automate it.

In the attached, I essentially need to find a way to move the Rubric Column into the Summary Column so it will populate the records.

Hmm, assuming the "Summary" linked field always only has one record, you could try creating an automation that will trigger whenever a record gets linked in there, and its action would be to update the newly linked record with all of the values from the Rubric Column?

I feel like there might be a simpler way to do this though.  If you could provide some screenshots of example data and example output you'd want I could see what I can come up with!
