Pulling Tables, Linked Records appearing as Keys

Hi! I'm fairly new to API's and using it to pull data. 

I'm trying to pull data from all my tables in one of my bases using the AirTable PyAPI. The problem I've noticed is that when I pull these records, the linked records seem to appear as keys (e.g. as ['rec0v48BBolMT6HD1']) but I wanted to map these to the values they link towards in other tables. Is there any way to map these? Thanks!

Hey there—it is expected behavior that linked record field values return Record IDs like that via API. If you’re looking to fetch those records' field values, you can perform another “get record” request on those IDs using the syntax that PyAPI provides (assume this is referencing the airtable package for Python?). Alternatively, you can add lookup or rollup fields to the same table where that linked record field lives so that you can read those values alongside the linked record values. Hoping this can help!
