Hi! I have a table that is defined by an auto-incrementing numerical id, and then the secondary field is "Name". I want people to be able to select records in a form based on that name, or at least validate the ID they've selected is the correct name. 

Is there any way to display a look-up field within a form, or even better allow a user to select a linked record based on searching or browsing a look-up field?

Thanks in advance!

All of this is possible, but not with Airtable’s native forms. You would need to use Fillout’s forms for Airtable to do this.

I give a brief demonstration of Fillout on this episode of the BuiltOnAir podcast.

p.s. If you have a budget for your project and you’d like to hire an expert Airtable consultant to help you with any of this, please feel free to contact me through my website: Airtable consulting — ScottWorld
