Hello Coda Community!!
I am trying to make a multi-select lookup column into plain text using .totext(), then trying to make it into a numbered list using .numberedlist(), but the list seems to break and only turn into one line.
Here is what it looks like, vs what I’d like it to look like, minus the links to each of the test items.
What it looks like using the above:
What I’d like it to look like, minus the links to each test item:
I’ve tried to change the order of the .totext() and the .numberedlist() but to no success.

Let me know if you have any trouble accessing this!
Got it for you! Its a small little change you need to make
If you look at the screenshot above - that green
ITEMS chip has a little icon in it. Each and every icon in a formula chip means something. The specific icon in the green chip is telling you:
Hey Jad! The data you are pulling in through this little green chip is a list of rows.
Row values hold within them every column value from the table they are a part of and you can access the specific column values by chaining them out with a .
When you were adding
toText() to the end of the chip initially it was changing the value of the green chip from a list of rows to a simple text value. Hence why when you did
NumberedList() on the value as a text it only resulted in a single item.
Hopefully that helps!
Yup! That was it!!
This totally makes sense!
Thank you for breaking that down for me!
I was absolutely overthinking it!
