Creating links between tables

A very powerful aspect of Stacker is the ability to create links between tables, to enable you to share data across tables.

How to create links between tables in Stacker

  1. Go to the table that you would like to link to another table. 
  2. Click  Manage fields and data

This will open the Fields Settings for your table. Here's what to do next: 

  1. Click Fields
  2. Click Add field and select Link to another record
  3. Enter a field name (we suggest choosing a name that accurately reflects the information the data is linking, e.g. 'Link to Client')
  4. Choose which table you want to link to
  5. Select which fields you want to link. Please note: in order for the linking to work, the values in those fields must match exactly.
  6. Once saved, you will see the new field in the field list.The link is also visible in the table you've linked to - though it is not editable from this side.
