Airtable - How to get the record value for linked column using appsmith


I am new to using Appsmith and have linked data in my Airtable storage. When displaying the data on Appsmith, some linked columns only show the record ID. I need help getting the text for those IDs to show up. I tried the solution provided by someone else, but it did not work for me.


The issue was that linked data in the Airtable table was not showing the text but the record ID in the Appsmith table widget. The solution was to drill down one more level in the data binding i.e. {{currentRow.Country.somethingelse}} to get the text for that object. The user needed to set the Evaluated Value for the column in the table widget property pane to reflect the correct data binding. A screenshot was requested to confirm the settings.
