Describe the problem/error/question
I tried for days now - can’t make it work. Can someone help / send a video?
All i want to do is update a cell in a document in coda from n8n.
Please share your workflow
Information on your n8n setup
- n8n version: Current
- Database (default: SQLite): SQLite
- n8n EXECUTIONS_PROCESS setting (default: own, main): default
- Running n8n via (Docker, npm, n8n cloud, desktop app): Docker
- Operating system: MacOS
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
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.
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?
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.
