Multiple file picker fields for one column

I am trying to upload multiple images to one “Attatchment” column in Airtable

I read in previous forum posts that most people achieved this by having multiple file/image picker fields.

However when I try to do this, I get the following error. And when I upload a file to one field, it automatically uploads that same file to the second field.

Am I doing something wrong? Or is there a better solution for uploading multiple files to one Airtable column?

You can’t do that with Glide. The file picker can only upload a single file, and can only write the url to a column that accepts a single value. You can point multiple file picker components to a single column, but that single column can still only accept one url, so they would all just overwrite each other. The Airtable attachment column and a handful of other Airtable columns are specific types that are unique to Airtable so they are not always cross platform compatible with Glide.

Your best option for now is to have separate file picker components that each write to separate columns. Maybe you could have some logic that would merge all of the individual columns into an array, and then write that array of urls to your attachment column, but I’m not sure how or if that will work. I don’t have any experience using Airtable.
