Say I have this Base A. As I have more and more Tables added to it, I want to split it to two
Bases A and B to better separate my workgflow.

Is there a trick to make a table in base B keep linked to a table in Base A? I understand I can use Synced Table to achieve this somehow?

My plan for now is to duplicate Base A and rename/make "Base A Copy" into Base B, and then delete the unrelated tables in each base to split them. Ie, in Base A, Tables 1, 2, 3 stays and 4, 5, 6 gets deleted; in Base A Copy (ie Base B) Tables 4, 5, 6 stays and 1, 2, 3 gets deleted). But Table 4 is linked to Table 1. Is the only way manually relinking everything? 

Thanks so much in advance.

Yeah, you can use synced tables for this but bear in mind only Business plans and above have two way syncs

Your plan sounds like a pretty good way to handle it

If Table 4 is linked to Table 1, then Table 1 will need to exist in some form in Base B as well, and vice versa, and yeap, you'd need to have everything linked up in both bases
