Hi Team,

We are trying to link a few records between 2 different project bases and we hope that you can show us the right direction.

Problem Statement: We have 2 Project Bases, External and Internal, and we would like to add the records in External Base to another table in Internal Base.

Progress so far: We can sync all records from Table 2 in one base to another base with no problem.

Help Needed: Can we do a formula or rule set to add records from synced table to the another table in the same base ( Vlookup)?

We would really appreciate your thoughts and guidance on this one.

Thanks in advance.

No. Formulas cannot “find” data that is not associated with the record on which the formula is applied.

If you need records from a synced table to be represented in a “regular” table you will need to create an Automation that is triggered when a new record is created in Table 2 to create a new record in Table 3, and like that new record with the one from Table 2.
