AddRow()
Adds a row to a table
or stated otherwise...
Hey Coda, add a row to this table, and here are the values I want in each column.

AddRow() has three parameters. Column and ColumnValue can be repeated for each column in the table:

AddRow(Table, Column, ColumnValue)

The table to add a row to.

AddRow(Table, Column, ColumnValue)

The column you want to add values to.

ColumnValue

AddRow(Table, Column, ColumnValue)

The values to add to the column.


Tables are the core building block of Coda and your tables are nothing without rows! AddRow() is without a doubt the action that you will use most commonly in your docs.

Adding Rows To Tables

Adding rows to a table is one of the two common ways to to use the AddRow() action. There are many ways to do it and no way is necessarily better than another. Try out the buttons below, notice how they perform slightly different actions, and then look into their configurations to see what they are doing.

Adding Rows From One Table To Another Table

The other most common situation in which you will use the AddRow() action is to add a row from one table to another related table. This is honestly where some of the secret sauce of Coda comes in, so follow along closely, click around with the buttons, view formulas, and more!
