Hello all!

I wouldlike to know if it’s possible to have in the column “test” all the items which are in the same period. For example in the first row of the colum “test” the result would be “FRT54522” because “FRT54522” has a period in common with “FRT5678C”.

Many thanks for your help :slightly_smiling_face:

Hey Matthieu! Airtable formulas only have access to one row of data at a time. So a formula executing in one row has access to any column values it needs, but not any other rows. The exception is the functionality that linked records/lookups afford, but I don’t think that helps in this case.

The alternatives you’re left with are probably:

  • filtering, sorting, or grouping your list by date ranges
  • write a script to populate TEST whenever you click a button
  • rig up a third party integration that automatically scours for updates to the base, and updates the TEST column as necessary

Best of luck!

Many thanks for your answer.
Doesn’t look easy for me :frowning:
Do you know where I can find somebody who can help me on this point?
Many thanks again for your answer!
