Create a new table with user specific column based on imported data

Is there any way to create a new table based on imported data where the columns are user specific. The data isn’t actually used but will be replaced as the table is a helper table

This will make creating a new table a lot easier.

How would you import the data?

@ThinhDinh i would use the import function in the data editor. And there I would select an excel sheet xlxs

I think there is no way to have columns as user specific unless we add it one by one.

In fact, I also want to create Helper table by duplicating existing table but I think it is not possible in that way. Even when you duplicate existing helper table with all User specific fields, it will still be normal fields.

It would be beneficial if it was possible to change a column to user specific - a warning would though be appropriate as the data in the column was be left unrelated to a user. But I have too many times been redoing columns in order to get them user specific

This is incorrect now. When you duplicate a Glide table with USCs, USCs stay as USCs.

Then this won’t make your original statement possible. Why do you need them to be user-specific if you’re importing it from a xlsx file though?

That’s good. I only tried it once few months ago but it did not work. Thank you for this.

If you have the attributes described and defined outside glide it would be beneficial to be able to import the attributes to avoid a lot of copy/paste. So it is only attributes/columns. Not rows with data
