If user inputs same nickname of already others input nickname(in Airtable DB), I want to let user types other nickname

  1. I want compare Airtable’s nickname and new typped nickname.

  2. Unique nickname need to be stored in Airtable.

  3. The Doc of Thunkable/Airtable is too short

The GetColumn function returns a list (the green column block). When you add the gear/list block in front of it, you make a list containing a list which is not what you should be doing. If you only want to compare the last cell in the column to the user’s input, then remove the gear/list block.

If instead you want to check if the user’s input matches any cell in the column, use the does list contain block instead of the = block.

THUNKABLE HELP DEST doesn’t have much advice and doesn’t show coding, it just talks
So beginners are hard to code with thunkable

There are tutorials and lots of videos on YouTube that you might find helpful.

And you can always post a screenshot of your blocks and/or a link to your project and explain what problem you’re having.


Comparing function doesn’t work

Thunkable help team is insincere, not showing the coding block

I don’t have anyone to help me but Tatiang.

Tiatang said you can post some screen shots of what you’ve tried. Did you try debugging the get column function? What about the comparison function didnt work? Most of us on this forum help other for free in our spare time.

We can’t help you unless you’re willing to do the work. Just telling us something doesn’t work is not helpful. You need to show us how you set up your blocks and explain what happens when you preview/test your code.

The documentation can be helpful but you’re right, it’s missing some information. Users like me can help you to fill in those missing details.

  1. I want compare Airtable’s nickname and new typped nickname.
  2. Unique nickname need to be stored in Airtable.

These are the same blocks you posted before. Please read my post again:

I’m guessing that you want to check the entire column to see if the user’s input exists. So you need to use the does list contain block.

Follow this guided example

If you still have issues then you need to share your code not only the block you already shared.
