Excellent. Thank you
Thanks Glide team!
Blocking the entire weekend for updating ‘them templates’.
What’s your approach in regard to computed columns?
Haven’t thought about it yet. I guess we will have to recreate them once the import is done. Will know more once I do a couple of these.
Love this. Super helpful. But it would be 10x more helpful if the import could either (1) generate a new Glide table, or (2) Refresh an existing Glide table, e.g. overwrite the previous import without corrupting any computed columns.
In short, (2) would be a manual sync for Excel files. Soooooo useful because it avoids the need to grant Glide access to my professional MS account. I encounter this message when I try to connect an Excel file:
For recreating templates, exporting CSV and importing CSV saved a bit of time, but the real time sucker is recreating all the computed columns and then assigning the Glide Table columns to the existing screens/components/actions…still took me an entire day for one of my templates.
Hopefully a convert app to glide tables is still in the works?
I need to add about 100 rows into one of my Glide Tables and I wanted to know if I can import them instead of doing it one by one.
I see there is an import feature but it seems it only works for “users” table
That usually works okay for a small(ish) number of rows. You might have to copy them in 3 or 4 batches.
I tried but nothing happens. I have a google sheets file with the new data. I see now a meesage regarding Glide API
“The Glide API allows you to add, edit, and delete rows in Glide Tables. Upgrade to Pro for API access.”
I am not yet a Pro user. I need to upgrade in order to copy/paste items in my tables?
No, copy/pasting into tables has nothing to do with the API.
How are you pasting?
You should use cmd-v (MacOS) or ctrl-v (Windows).
Yes, like that
When I paste on a row nothing happens, but if I double click on a cell, I can paste the text inside
Works for me
Note that you have to first add enough empty rows in your Glide table to accept the data being pasted.
