Links vs. Relations Airtable/ consequences

I have read through the basic information here: Glide Docs • Airtable

Since I am using airtable, I wonder if there are differences between the different types of link tables. This came to my mind when I saw this:

the information of the lookup fields are the same, but they look different. although they look different, is it the same?
Thank you very much for your answers!

Disclaimer: I’m not an AirTable user.

The one on the left is returning a single value, the one on the right is returning a single element array.
The presence of the “bubble” around the value tells you that it’s an array.
In practical terms, it means that you wouldn’t be able to use the AirTable lookup in any text type components that expect a single value. If you wanted to, what you could probably do is use a Single Value column and direct it at your AirTable lookup column.


Thank you! that makes sence!!!
