Hello guys, is it possible to create a field where I have a drop down (multiple select) list where I can also set the number of items, without creating another table to do that?
Something like having [chair, table, pen] as choices and the possibility to add the number of the items, (chair, 3), (table, 1) etc.
Thanks for helping!

PS: is it possible to create a form that references more tables?

Welcome to the community, @Vlad_Sodringa! :grinning_face_with_big_eyes: I think I know the kind of setup you’re seeking in terms of choosing an item and quantity from a list, and unfortunately Airtable’s forms aren’t designed for that kind of input. You’ll need to explore other form services like JotForm or Cognito Forms, both of which are more robust and can connect to Airtable.

Using link fields you can link the record created by the form to any other table in your base. However, that might not actually solve your problem. You didn’t indicate what you were hoping to accomplish with that setup. :slightly_smiling_face: If you could provide more details, we can more easily help!
