Hi all,

Looking for a way to have a URL button open a Google News search with the terms in the first column. I tried this: (https://www.google.com/search?q={Tax Change}) (tax change is the name of the first column), but it’s telling me I still have an error.

Help Airtable friends!

Your formula would have to be something closer to this:

"https://www.google.com/search?q=" & {Tax Change}

or

"https://www.google.com/search?q=" & ENCODE_URL_COMPONENT({Tax Change})

Thanks so much this was super helpful! This works to open a main google search, but I’m aiming specifically at google news… any thoughts on how to do that?

If you actually search something in google news and look at the address bar you’ll see the prefix you need to use:

"https://news.google.com/search?q="
