Column Type impacts how AppSheet handles your data, so selecting the right one is important. Sometimes you might encounter a situation where you would prefer to get more specific about your data. AppSheet guesses what your column type is, but you can always customize it in the Column tab of the Editor. For instance, if you have a column called “First Name” of type Text, you can change it to be a Name type column instead.
- Select the Data > Columns pane and select Show for the table you would like to change.
2. Locate your Column Name and the corresponding Column Type you would like to change. In this example, for the Column Name "First Name", Column Type was changed from "Text" to "Name."
3. Select Save and your Column Type change is complete.
