What could be the problem?

ps I decided to ask a question, because constantly faced with such unpredictable behavior in Coda Update Row: either works or not or worked - then not.
It is not clear what the problem is.

Hi! I apologize for the disturbance.
You wrote about updating the row

Have you had the same problem?
Would you mind telling me what the problem is?

Thank you very much!

Hey @Mikhail,

That is very strange, The error itself is coming back from Coda. I am not sure why it is saying it can’t find the row but my best guess here would be that the issue has something to do with the configuration in Coda.

I will see if I can find someone internally who might have more experience with Coda and could help.

Hey @Jon !

Thank you for your reply and your willingness to help!

I think it’s a problem on the Coda side too, I just don’t understand what exactly the problem is.
I noticed that if the table in Coda has only those columns that we change, there are no problems. If there are many columns, then this problem occurs. This is the case in the example above.
