Hey @ManyQuestions,

I don’t use Coda myself but are you seeing any errors when trying to update a row?

Problem is: which action to use…

The only thing that would make sense is:
(a view is like a synced copy of a table, but then i don’t understand why not update a cell in a table)

here i don’t know:

  • what Key name means (i tried the column name but didn’t work…)
  • what i am doing wrong

Hey @ManyQuestions,

It owuld be update row, The key name field would be the name of the keys from the previous node that you want to send to Coda.

Hey @Jon, I did update my last comment and explained a little more. Also i don’t really understand your last comment.

Hey @ManyQuestions,

With the coda node we send the data from the node before it, Looking at the node again though unless you are updating a field in a view we don’t have the option to just update a table row only create or delete. I guess the update option was missed when the node was created.

I can update a field in a view. That’s not a problem. But where can select which column it should update?

Hey @ManyQuestions,

I was setting up a trial account with Coda and it turned out I already had one. I did some looking around and I found that I previously spent some time working this out which can be found here: Seeking Assistance with Key Name Values in Coda's Update Row Operation using n8n - #3 by EmeraldHerald

Let me know if that helps.
