Hello. I need to do the following: if I have two columns that I display with and link to a new table. When I choose a record from the column 1, I would like to be able to choose from the column 2 the ones that correspond to it according to the previous selection. For example, if I choose in the “Area” column, “Industrial Activity”, from the Topic column I choose only the three that correspond to it. As shown in the picture
Than you!

Hi @ARC_Gonza,

Sounds like a lookup field will work for you. Watch this video to understand how a lookup field works.


Welcome to the Airtable community!

Airtable does not currently support what you want. Here is one workaround that provides this functionality when there is only one user linking only one record at a time. There are other variations on this technique, but they tend to have similar limitations.
