Any way to find references to a specific row in a table?

I know that doc map can show you all the references to a given table, but is there any way to show all references to a specific row in a table? I’m thinking something like what you get when you search, with the locations and surrounding text, but specifically for references.

Dear @Mikhail_Gordin,

Not sure if I understand your point, does this post put you in the right direction

Many-to-many cross reference

Hi @Jean_Pierre_Traets,

I don’t think so, sorry. I’m not trying to make a table of references that I fill out. Rather - let’s say I have Table 1 with three rows (Row A, Row B, Row C) in Section 1. I then reference Row A in the text of Section 2 and Section 3, and Row B in Section 4.

Right now, I can go to the doc map and it will tell me that Table 1 has been referenced in Sections 2, 3, and 4. However, what I actually want is to know that Row A has been referenced in Section 2 and 3, and Row B in Section 4. Do you know if there is some way to show that information?

Dear @Mikhail_Gordin,

Now I understand what you mean, but to be honest I am not aware to how or where to find such info.
Obviously it should be available somewhere at the “background”.

@Paul_Danyliuk is very competent and has challenged many docs to the limit, hopeful he will be able to address your question.

I am just curious :innocent:, what will be the use case being able to see this info :question:

Hi @Jean_Pierre_Traets,

I’m looking at using Coda as an RPG campaign management tool. In this use case, I would have some tables containing people, organizations, and so forth that play a role in the game, and then primarily text sections for notes from individual sessions. I’d expect the items from those tables to be mentioned throughout different notes sections.

Something that comes up periodically is that I’ll want to see what an individual item (e.g., a particular person in the game) has been involved in previously, as context for my current planning. Search mostly does this, but I can see where there might be suboptimal with overlapping names and the like. It would be nice to have a dedicated way of specifically finding and viewing those mentions.
