Hello Everyone,

I want to copy the whole Table including Column Names (headers), is that possible ?

I don't want to type by hand all column names each time I copy/paste the whole table in a spreadsheet for example.

Thank you for your help

Hey @yonathan

You can achieve this by simply exporting a view of your table as a CSV.

If you're simply trying to get the field names, then create a filter that filters out every record, leaving you with a blank view. Be sure to verify that all of your desired fields are visible in the view as well.

Thank you, so impossible to copy paste like in a spreadsheet including columns. Only way is CSV export right ?

I agree, would be great to be able to copy headers without the CSV export. The best hack I have found is: 

1) select all desired rows

2) right click > Send all selected records

3) make sure the "Use grid layout" option  is turned on

4) Highlight the top row (headers in the message window) > Copy

5) Paste into selected app

1) Exporting to CSV is not user-friendly.

2) The solution proposed by "Jeremy_Darner" does not work to paste into Google Sheets or MS Excel.

3) Airtable creates lock-ins and we have to spend on other tools to find solutions.

The best solution I've found so far is Coupler.io.

The good thing is that combining Airtable, Coupler, and FiLLout we can also create Client Portals.
