Airtable connector fail to import

Airtable connector fail to import

Hi all,


Does anyone have experience with the Airtable connector in Domo? For example, is there a limitation of total columns? I am having problem importing a view (1135 columns, let's call it view A) from Airtable, but I was able to import another view from the same table (458 columns, view B).  I checked there is no emoji in view A and the app ID, table name, view name are correct. I can't figure out why this is not working. The error message is simply 'Failed to execute import successfully.'


Any help is appreciated.

Hi @user049190 

Yes there is a limitation to the number of columns supported when importing AirTable data. I think it was around 500 columns. You also need to be careful of nested cells as it will expand every possible value to a new column in attempt to flatten the data which will cause your number of columns to expand greatly.
