Linked Records

Unlike Airtable CSV download, Airtable API doesn’t include linked record names by default. It will be shown as IDs instead. So to fix that you would need to add a lookup field that shows the linked record’s name.

Troubleshooting

Some fields contain random characters, why?

These are linked fields showing record IDs. To solve this, add a lookup field and use it instead. We recommend to use formulas not just for linked records, even for currency, date formats and many other field types that are not fully supported in Airtable API.

Will exported files include attachments?

Attachment fields will only contain direct links to the files. This is not a limitation in our product. That’s just the nature of CSV file format. It’s designed to store text data in a spreadsheet. It’s not possible to store image files in them. However, if your goal is just to show the images in Excel, then there’re ways to do that.

Some fields are displayed in the wrong format, why?

By default, Airtable API doesn’t show fields in the exact same way they look on Airtable. For example, linked record names will be shown as IDs instead. To fix that you would need to add a lookup field that shows the linked record’s name. We recommend to use formulas for many field types like currency, date and any other field that needs to be formatted.
