How to create a new table in a Local Data Source?

Hi all,

sorry if I can’t see an obvious way, but I am not able to add a new table to a Local Data Base. I can create new Data Sources, and when I select “Create your own table” it contains “Table1” per default. But how can I add another table?



no, not another local data source. In your example the first Local Data Source is called “Test”, and it contains one table called “Table1” (just click on “Test”). How can I add another table inside of “Test”?


Then this option is to use a single table with several sets of columns, for example, column 1 to 3 is the first table, from 4-8 is the second, and so on. But in this case, all the tables will be linked together and you will have to think about how to delete data from one set of columns, and save it in the rest.

uh oh. I think I request this feature in github.

Thanks for your reply.

So in my blocks I can load a different table data in my data list based on some logic.

You can achieve this in google sheets or airtable but I refuse to use them as they are extremely buggy.
